Birding Broward County

Looking for a local "do-it-yourself" birding adventure?  Broward County and the surrounding area host a wealth of opportunities for urban and backcountry birdwatching.  Broward County Audubon Society has its favorite birding hotspots.  After checking these out, if you need further information, send an email to the author, Paddy Cunningham Pascatore, birdpaddy@yahoo.com or visit her web site at http://www.birdadventure.com/.

Birding Florida

Florida is on the Atlantic Coast flyway for migrating birds going between the Artic and tropical environments.  Many migrants either cross the Gulf of Mexico on its western side or fly around it during migration. Because of its warm climate year round many birds are residents. Between the Everglades and the panhandle birds find a wide range of desirable habitats: salt marshes, sandy beaches, pinelands, sawgrass marsh, mangrove forests, hardwood hammocks, cypress swamps, and more.  Planning a Florida ecotourism adventure for your next vacation?  The Great Florida Birding Trail documents some of the best bird and wildlife watching in the state.   Stop first on this website at Birding Florida to see what special events are planned for this coming year.

Birding the USA

Before traveling to other states, check out sources of birding information in each state.  Read Birding the USA web page for ideas.

Birds Mating
Birds pair up.  Males display unique colors or behavior during courting to attract the desired female.  They may posture, puff up, spread and flap wings, bow and stretch, preen one another, and even do loop-the-loop in midair in courting.  Males will fight other males away. As they come together to copulate, there will be moments of excitement as well as moments of tenderness.
