- 1). Take a trip to Everglades National Park. It's one of North America's birding hot spots, and more than 350 bird species have been recorded there.
- 2). Plan to attend the Florida Birding Festival, held in late September in Clearwater. Not only will you be able to attend workshops and field trips, but you'll meet local birders who can direct you to the best birding spots.
- 3). Visit refuges, including the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Chassahowizka National Wildlife Refuge and Corkscrew Swamp National Audubon Sanctuary, to name a few.
- 4). Bird the Florida Keys, where migratory birds fly over on their way to the tropics.
- 5). Visit a Nature Conservancy preserve. One is located just outside Orlando: the Disney Wilderness Preserve.
- 6). Contact a tour company if you don't want to bird Florida on your own. Birding tours to Florida are extremely popular.
