I have just been to Florida and used this guide. The guide is thoroughly researched and useful in the field for finding the birds. I would recommend the author use more site maps rather than text to describe routes as those of us who dont know the site can find it confusing especially when road names/numbers etc are not apparent on the ground. I would miss text or one off rarities that were seen. Otherwise very useful guide.

I chose this to advise on sites where the birds can be found. This is a good complimentary book to the National Geographic which contains plates with the species in.

So much information, certainly more than enough to ensure a bird watching holiday in Texas will be one to remember.

A Worthwhile Book for Birding in Florida 25 Nov. 2007
By David True - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Of the more than 700 species of bird known to annually spend some time on the North American continent, over 500 of these species are or may be found be found in Florida. If you want to observe these birds, Birding Florida, coupled with the Great Florida Birding Trail Guides, is all the birder needs to find and observe the many species of birds available there

The 500 species found in Florida are broken down into 343 species that regularly occur and 154 vagrant species. Using the standard definitions for status: residents - species that are present year round and/or nest and breed in the state, visitors - species that are present in the state all or part of the year but do not breed or nest in the state, and migrants - species that pass through the state in the spring or fall while going to other areas to breed or nest, the author describes 58 areas within the state where birders may observe birds of interest. Florida has 151 resident species which the author has divided the into 37 year round resident species and 25 summer visitors found in the state only in the spring and summer that are especially sought out by birders with another 52 species that may be found in areas other than Florida but still of interest.

The book contains nine maps of which eight are regional maps showing the location of each of the birding areas. While the book does not contain an individual map for any location, explicit directions for driving to each area are given, and each area is referenced using plate numbers and grid locations to the Delorme© Florida Atlas and Gazetteer so I didn't object to the lack of maps. The final chapter book presents a list of the 343 regularly occurring species that includes a state range map, and a brief description of the 154 vagrant species noted. All species have been verified by the Records Committee of the Florida Ornithological Society.

Disappointing 14 Sept. 2007
By Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book has many birding sites throughout the state of Florida. My complaint is that the book does not contain maps of the sites. There are large maps with no detail. The birding sites are shown as a number on the map with no detail on how to get there. For that you must read through a paragraph of directions to multiple locations. It is almost impossible to use on the road. In order to use the book, you will need to research the sites on the internet and print a map. For reference, look at "Birding Georgia" by Giff Beaton (same publisher). This book has very good maps. Hopefully this book will add the maps in later editions.

Every birder birding Florida needs this book!!! 29 Aug. 2007
By A. W. Mitchell III - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Brian did a great job researching the Birding Locations for this book. The book is divided into areas of the state and their most popular and successful birding location. Brian gives clear directions to hot spots and provides lists of species and the best time of year to see them at each location. I put the book to the test when I took a trip to the Belle Glade Area of Florida. All of his information was useful and accurate. Brian is one of Florida's top birders and has personally visited each of the locations multiple times.

Buy the book, you won't be sorry.

Great little book 1 Aug. 2009
By my2cents - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really like this book for my needs. It gives a lot of detail for quite a few places. Point by point turns, where to look, what time of year is best, etc. It highlights 54 areas within 8 groups: Northeast, East-Central, Southeast, Florida Keys/Everglades, Southwest, West-Central, Northwest and the Panhandle so where ever you are planning to go, you'll have an idea of what you may want to investigate depending on what time of year you're there. This guy knows his stuff. Seriously. For instance, if you go to Babcock-Webb Wildlife Management Area, he'll tell you to: "drive east 1.4 miles on Tucker Grade (unpaved beyond the check station) to Oil Well Grade. Turn left and drive north 0.8 miles to the small RCW sign on the left." etc. (you get the idea) to find nesting habitats of endangered Red-cockaded Woodpeckers. He'll even let you know the best time to find them around their nests are dawn and dusk. Only problem I had was I found this book AFTER I went there and was disappointed by the area so I didn't see any and drove around pretty aimlessly. So if you're looking for a little planning ahead, I think this book will help. Keep in mind Florida is a big state, you may not find everything, but if you're a beginner like me, you'll probably find it helpful.

Birding Florida 26 Mar. 2012
By Calfla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is probably the best guide available for where to go in Florida for bird watching. It is a natural companion for your favorite field guide. It is nicely organized and easy to use. The first 22 pages provides an overview to birding in Florida. Next is a thorough coverage listing the prime areas for bird watching in the state. Each area is given an identifier number for each site with their locations shown on an easy to read map located in the middle of the table of contents. Regional maps are also shown for each of the eight regions that are used in this guide as well as distribution maps for each species.

Each of the 54 locations covered provides a listing of the habitats, birds you would expect to find, times of the year to visit, and directions by car or boat. If you use this guide properly; you are not likely to spend five hours traveling to a site to see a particular type of bird and learning that they are here nine months of the year, but not this month.

The lack of a bird species index that lists all forms of the birds name is a slight weakness. If you hear about the wonderful Swallowtails of Florida, you won't find them under 'S.' You need to know that they are a "Swallow-tailed Kite' and listed under Kite; where you will find 66 page numbers listed in one large undifferentiated group.

The organization for the species distribution maps (called species accounts) in Chapter 6 is also a little problematic. They are listed in groups by type of bird without headings for the groups. To find the distribution map for the Ovenbird, you need to know that it is a warbler and listed with them. If you want to find the distribution map for the Ovenbird, you need to look it up in the Index and go to the last of the seven page numbers listed.

Overall, a very usable book.
