To increase the fun and challenging aspects of birding, the park partnered with the Tropical Audubon Society to offer a certificate program for birders. Happy birding!
- Birds must be observed within park boundaries.
- The program follows American Birding Association recording rules and birding ethics. Some exotic species are not considered countable including mynas, Mandarin ducks, peacocks, parrots and more.
- Bring completed checklists to the Dante Fascell Visitor Center. Please include name, date and e-mail address.
- Achievement certificates are awarded at various levels; 30 = double-crested cormorant, 60 = royal tern, 90 = brown booby and 120 = mangrove cuckoo. Kids earn a junior birder certificate for identifying ten species. Returning birders earn a certificate for identifying 50 native park birds.
