Bird watching takes flight at Biscayne National Park - Outdoors - MiamiHerald.com
A new local outdoor activity kicks off which should be added to your family "To Do" list. Read up in the Sunday Miami Herald: Bird watching takes flight at Biscayne National Park, which introduces the Biscayne Birding Trail — a free program created by the park and Tropical Audubon Society (TAS) to encourage South Florida residents and tourists to
get outdoors and watch wildlife. Visitors may pick up a bird checklist
at the Dante Fascell Visitor Center and mark down which species they see
within the park boundaries on both land and water. A ranger will verify
the bird count, and the birder will receive an achievement certificate
on the spot. Full-color certificates will be awarded for lifetime
achievement levels starting at 30 native park bird species and
culminating with expert for identifying 120 species. There’s even a
special category for junior birders who spot 10 or more different birds
in the park.
