Bird Board

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. Tropical Audubon Society reserves the right to edit or remove posts with inappropriate content, including advertising, offensive language and personal attacks.


Users of this forum are asked to provide location specifics for bird sightings, including directions where appropriate, and are encouraged to include a photograph to illustrate bird sightings. Users are asked not to post specifics for nesting locations, as disturbance may result in birds abandoning their nest.
