Birds Making a Living in Florida



Fatbirder's Top 500 Birding Websites

The bird species in the galleries below represent about 45 percent of the
total number of aves that make their home in, or migrate through, the state of Florida.

Florida has very diverse habitats which different species of bird seem to favor. Most of the species
of birds I have observed and documented thus far can be found in southwest Florida with a concern
on occasion for the time of year or a particularly accommodating venue (food source).
Every image is of a bird that was photographed in the wild.

Each image indicates where the bird was photographed, at what time of year, with additional info in the exif data.

This gallery is not well maintained. There are many bird species that I have
photographed though have yet to find the time to place an image of them in their gallery.
All species in the "tree view" have been highlighted in the blog, however.

The thumbnails below may be clicked on to open the species' gallery, and I also invite you
