  • Birdsong Nature Center
    room This one room screened in building afforded nice views of the forest and meadows but alas no birds Refreshed I continued the rest of the way back to the main house and the long anticipated Bird Window Along the path I was lucky enough to see an eastern bluebird red headed woodpecker and these two as yet unidentified birds Unfortunately I didn t get a picture of the actual room and it s floor to ceiling picture window but the bird viewing from my side of the glass was breath taking Mid July and mid day I was not expecting much but I was rewarded with some phenomanal action OK so there weren t any migratory rarities today but I did see some remarkably colored juvenile cardinals Not to be out done the hummingbirds wanted to pose for the paparazzi as well The tufted titmce were well represented In addition to a red bellied woodpecker this eastern towhee paid a visit and decided it was bath time Just as I was packing up to leave which was a real struggle I was surprised and excited to see this wonderful specimen stop by also for a bath The indigo bunting

  • Great Florida birding trail
    and Wildlife Guide Books will attest The well laid out guide book is a valuable resource available free at all Florida Travel and Tourism offices Did I mention it is free The trail is divided into sections East West Panhandle and South Florida and the guide does a great job of mapping and describing each location Their online site is a valuable asset as well and is worth a visit Florida Birding Trail Online A brief description of each site and a sampling of bird species one might encounter is included Although the guide book is reasonably accurate be sure to check carefully the hours of operation and don t always believe them I have arrived at many a park at sunset only to find the gates closed at four Some locations you pay State Park entrance fees but most sites are free and are readily accessible for hiking biking or equestrian Grab a guide book and follow the easy to read directions even to the most remote sites I wanted to photograph the Florida scrub jay a life bird for me so I checked the guide book and headed to central Florida s Lake June In Winter State Park
