The definitive photographic guide to the fantastic birds of Florida. Stretching from temperate North America through the central highlands and vast Everglades wetlands of the peninsula and beyond to its Caribbean Keys, Florida is a great place to go birding at any time of the year. Roseate Spoonbills and Mangrove Cuckoo add a tropical flavour to its rich avifauna; woodland and scrub specialities include Red-cockaded Woodpecker and Florida Scrub-jay, while birds such as Snail Kites soaring over marshes and Snowy Plovers on the mudflats are high on any birder’s wish-list. Vast numbers of migrants such as warblers, vireos, and flycatchers passing through each fall and spring add to the spectacle. This book by biologist and wildlife photographer Kirsten Hines will help you identify more than 300 of Florida’s regularly occurring species, including breeding birds, those on passage, and those wintering. Concise text for each species includes information on identification, songs and calls, behavior, distribution, habitat, and seasonality. Each photo has been carefully selected to guide identification, and equal prominence is given to male and female birds. A guide to the best birdwatching sites in Florida is also included. Portable yet authoritative and comprehensive, Birds of Florida will help you make the most of the dazzling variety of species to be found in the Sunshine State.
