Riassunto: For international birders Florida offers an accessible, comfortable introduction to subtropical birding. North American birders savor Florida as the place to see species not found elsewhere in the U.S. or Canada, such as Snail Kite, Short-tailed Hawk, Black-hooded Parakeet, Mangrove Cuckoo, Black-whiskered Vireo, or Florida Scrub-Jay.
A Birder's Guide to Florida offers a comprehensive introduction that helps birders understand seasonal bird distribution in Florida's various habitats. Whether you are hoping to see fairly common birds such as White-crowned Pigeon, or are searching for elusive birds such as Black Rail, or wish to be surprised by the discovery of an unconventional bird such as Scaly-headed Parrot, this bird-finding guide and your field guide are the only books you'll need!
L'autore: Bill Pantry has lived in Florida since 1978, when he and his family moved from their native Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Bill's primary interests in Florida field ornithology are the status and distribution of the state's avifauna, and ensuring proper documentation of rare birds, with a particular emphasis on exotic species. A member and incoming Chairman of the ABA Checklist Committee, Bill compiles bird observations for North American Birds and Florida Field Naturalist, the ornithological journals of the American Birding Association and the Florida Ornithological Society, respectively.
Bill has authored or co-authored more than 150 articles, reports, CBC compilations, and book reviews on Florida's avifauna. Since 1976, he has participated in 125 Christmas Bird Counts, all but one of these in central Florida. Bill works for Archbold Biological Station in central Florida, studying a color-banded population of Florida Scrub-Jays at Lake Wales Ridge State Forest. He is a member of the American Birding Association, American Ornithologists' Union, Association of Field Ornithologists, Florida Ornithological Society, The Nature Conservancy, and Wilson Ornithological Society.
