Bird A Day offers a personal challenge that will cause you to see and
enjoy more birds this year than you might if you don't participate. The
challenge is to see how many days in a row you can see/hear a different species
to add to your personal list. This website helps you track your effort and
allows you to share how you are doing with others as they do the same. more info.....

"Beyond The Pterodrom" - Bill Boeringer the Theme Master for Bird A Day thought we should honor our Australian friends who have taken up Bird A Day with a passion. Pterodroma or Petrels are pelagic birds except when breeding. There are 35 species that frequent all the oceans of the world. If your able to make a pelagic birding trip this year look for a petrel in your area. Here on the US east coast there are only a few species of Pterodroma likely to be seen. I've only seen one species, but not from my home port of Miami. Hopefully this year will be the year.
Birding Rocks- as do all of you who have participated in Bird A Day past years.
Congrats to the 2015 Champions

Congrats to all who have played along, no matter how deep into the year you made it. Get a few more of your birding friends to participate and do it again. You have to admit, its crazy FUN!
Razorbills on Miami Beach!
I still plan to upgrade areas of the website. Several other suggestions have been made that would enhance the site.
Fortunately I have been busy with work recently.... a good thing.... so I haven't had as much time as I would like to work on these things, but I hope to get them done soon.
Thank you so much for participating.
Florida Pelagic Adventures - Birding and Fishing off south Florida.
I recommend them is not just that they carry good quality stuff but the amount of time they devote to explaining things when selling is very good. After spending an hour demonstrating scopes the guy then put in 15 minutes to adjusting my 12 years old tripod so the legs extended smoothly. -- Martin Butterfield

Carlos Sanchez and EcoAvian Tours offers excellent birding and photography experiences in peninsular Florida, specializing in the following target species: Short-tailed Hawk, White-crowned Pigeon, White-winged Parakeet, Mangrove Cuckoo, Antillean Nighthawk, Gray Kingbird, Black-whiskered Vireo, Florida Scrub-Jay, Common Myna, Red-whiskered Bulbul, 'Cape Sable' Seaside Sparrow, Spot-breasted Oriole, Shiny Cowbird, and more.

Tropical Audubon's Bird Board provides a forum for local and visiting birders to share South Florida bird sightings with our birding community. In addition to reports of rare, unusual or interesting birds or other wildlife seen in our area, other appropriate content for this forum includes local birding trip reports and requests for identification assistance.
These trips in Costa Rica are run by a great bird guide, Roy Orozco.
