Birdwatching Tips to Try Outdoors

Florida is filled with unique environments such as swamps, wetlands, and beaches that are inhabited by some of the most colorful and eye-catching birds in the country, such as the roseate spoonbill, sandhill crane, and the Muscovy duck. In order to enjoy seeing these exotic species in-person, some people like to go birdwatching as a hobby. There are plenty of places near the Veranda Apartment Homes community that are perfect for birdwatching, including Palm Island Park and Gilbert Park. But, before going birdwatching at any of these places, it may be beneficial to consider some of the following tips:

  • Get binoculars – No birder is official until they have a set of binoculars. Binoculars allow birdwatchers to view birds at a distance, which is crucial to see birds that fly high in the sky and spend a lot of time in nests, such as the osprey and bald eagle.

  • Find a field guide – Field guides allow bird-watchers to properly identify a bird they may not recognize in the field. Field guides can provide useful information, such as migration patterns, that make identifying a new bird much easier.

  • Keep distance – While some birds, such as ducks and seagulls, are comfortable near people, not all Florida birds are the same. That’s why it is important to keep a safe distance from most birds and only view them with binoculars. Plus, disrupting a nest site or interfering with a bird’s migration may be detrimental to the environment.

  • Consider a camera – Cameras, especially those with long-range capture abilities, can be useful for those birders who want to catalog their experiences in the field.

The Veranda Apartment Homes community is conveniently located near plenty of great spots for birders. To learn more about the area or our Mount Dora, Florida, apartments, contact our leasing office today.
