WHERE TO BIRD

Birding Field Trips

You will find detailed information on birding field trips on the Events page
and brief mention of the dates and locations on Birding Broward and the Home Page.  We look forward to seeing you on the next Audubon adventure!

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.

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

Join

WHY PEOPLE JOIN

Individuals join the Audubon Society for a variety of reasons. 

  • Some join because they love anything to do with nature or wildlife.  They visit Audubon sanctuaries or nature centers and take nature walks or join naturalists on field trips to observe birds, butterflies, or other wildlife. 
  • Some join for the social aspects.  They attend the meetings and special events and help out with these as needed or desired. 
  • Still others join because they want to help create and protect habitats for nature's creatures. Perhaps they will create a naturescape in their backyard to attract birds and butterflies or they may volunteer to help protect turtles being hatched along the beaches. 
  • Other members are strong advocates for the environment.  They have dedicated themselves to educating policy makers, legislators, community planners, and developers about the consequences of plans to develop property in flood plains, paths of hurricanes, or wetlands.
  • Some join to participate in ecotours for their vacations or opportunities to help conservation efforts in other parts of the world.

By joining the South Florida Audubon Society you will automatically be enrolled in Audubon of Florida and National Audubon Society.  Your cost is only $20 yearly.
