Over 500 species of birdshave been spotted in Florida - we're a birdwatcher's paradise. This Fowl Trail is actually the Great Florida Bird Trail and information is provided by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

The Great Florida Bird Trail is made up of 2000 miles of self-guided highway trails throughout Florida. There are 445 birding sites located throughout Florida.

These trails were designed to conserve and promote "Florida's bird habitat by promoting birdwatching activities, conservation education and economic opportunity" (Source: GFBT Home page)

The Great Florida Bird trail is divided into 4 Sections and each one has it's own birding trail guide.  Pasco, Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties birding sites and trails in cities like Clearwater, Dunedin, Tierra Verde, St Petersburg and Tampa can be found in the West Section Guide.
