birding PARKS & NATURE M any birding enthusiasts start by putting up a few bird feeders at home and watching the dozen or so (or, in rural areas, many more) species that come to visit. Most birders learn a great deal more when they go out “birding” with others. The Flagler Audubon Society (www. FlaglerAudubonsociety.org) offers organized group trips, bird walks and local field trips that can accelerate the learning process. Take advantage by exploring the area’s five designated Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trails and more than 45 parks and preserves where you can spot more than 200 species.
