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). Read the rules carefully, fill out a Wings Over Florida application form and a checklist of Florida's birds, and send it to the address below for review.

Please see the Wings Over Florida Menu below or on the right hand side bar for more information about this fun program!
