Rare Upland Bird Sightings
This online registry will help researchers and conservation biologists from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission locate rare birds across the state. The Southeastern American Kestrel, Florida Burrowing Owl, and Painted Bunting are often missing from other state wide survey methods such as the Breeding Bird Survey. Without knowing the current distribution of these species, it is difficult to assess population trends or critical habitat associations. Select a species to get started.
