Who doesn’t like birds? There is something soothing about just watching these charming creatures. The rich diversity of color and form is truly remarkable. Did you know that Florida is one of the top five birding areas in all of North America? If you walk alongside Florida’s lush gardens, lakes, and coastal havens, you’ll see some of the most beautiful specimens. Better yet, take a birding class with ACE’s resident expert and learn more about the birds while you admire them!
