Birds

Florida is 3rd in Species recorded on Ebird (only behind TX and CA), with 566 Species. It boasts some of the top hotspots in the Country (the Lake Apopka Restoration Area is ranked 13th in the U.S.) and the top county (Pinellas) has more Species than 17 States.

What makes Florida unique is that more than half of the Birds recorded here are rarities, recorded a few times annually or less, showing that Florida is one of the best Rarity States in the U.S.

Some species (American Flamingo, Limpkin, Snail Kite, etc.) are recorded here the most and one Bird (Florida Scrub-jay) is found nowhere else in the World.

Florida is a Wildlife and Birding paradise, so come to the Sunshine State and enjoy!
