Wings Over Florida Program 

Wings Over Florida is a FREE award program open to resident and non-resident Florida birdwatchers. Its purpose is to encourage YOU to identify as many native birds as you can within Florida.

As your skills improve and your bird list grows, you can apply for increasing levels of achievement. Full color certificates are awarded at five levels starting at a life list of 50 Florida species (Beginner) and ending at 350 species (Elite Florida Birder). 

Levels of achievment
