Winter Birding Series- Florida Wetlands

As part of our Winter Birding Series, this birding event brings us to a Florida wetland ecosystem (also a stormwater treatment area). Known for its bird abundance and diversity, this location is a must see for any bird enthusiast. Additionally, this event will be led by our local Audubon Society’s naturalist and creator of the Audubon Moment, John Nelson. Bring your binoculars, if you don’t have them that is ok, we will bring extras. And don’t forget your bird ID book if you have one!
