Birding Resources

Whether you are new to birding or a Big Year pro, these resources will help you in your quest to learn more. Apply your knowledge on one of our many field trips.

Become a Bird Steward

One way to help Florida's beach-nesting birds is to become a Bird Steward at a beach or rooftop site. At beach-nesting sites, stewards who volunteer help ensure beachgoers do not enter fragile nesting areas and help educate visitors about the remarkable species that rely on Florida's shores for survival. Audubon will train you on the bird protections and biology you will need to be successful.

Community Science

We invite you to become volunteer Citizen Scientists and make a measurable difference in our environment and quality of life. In essence, Community Science is 'Citizen Science' conducted by members of a community of stakeholders; be they professionals or concerned individuals. It involves research conducted by members of the public, often with the help or supervision of a professional scientist or scientific institution.

Field Trips

Most trips are led by volunteer Clearwater Audubon Society leaders. Unless otherwise indicated, they are free and open to the public, but reservations are requested. We host monthly guided bird walks at Moccasin Lake Nature park which is free to the public. Discover birds and make new friends with us as we promote awareness, understanding, and stewardship of the natural environment through birding.
