The second annual Statewide Bluebird Blitz will take place on Friday November 18 and Saturday November 19, 2011.

 What is a Bluebird Blitz? The Statewide Bluebird Blitz is a concentrated effort by as many volunteers as possible going out all over the state of Florida on specific dates to locate as many Eastern Bluebirds as possible.

Great Florida Birding Trail update

The Great Florida Birding Trail has a new name! The program is now called the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail (GFBWT). The newly-updated Panhandle section guidebook is now available, and the revised East guidebook will be ready later in 2011. Both feature information on butterfly watching and other wildlife viewing opportunities, as well as improved maps, color photos, GPS coordinates, street addresses, and much more. The Birding Trail’s road signs and website address will remain the same.

Introducing the FBCI Statewide Avian Project Database!

The Florida Bird Conservation Initiative is proud to announce the launch of our Statewide Avian Project Database! One step towards achieving FBCI's mission is to ensure that everyone in the bird conservation community is aware of the projects with which we are involved. We need your help in developing this database, which will serve as a searchable and comprehensive snapshot of all avian conservation projects and activities underway throughout the state. We hope this will be a useful tool for connecting the avian conservation community in Florida!

Partners in Flight is pleased to announce the launch of a new field guide to web technologies for bird conservation. The guide is targeted at manager and administrator alike and provides simple, one-page summaries of a variety of general web tools (e.g., blogs, news feeds) as well as specific web-based applications (e.g., Facebook, eBird). Each summary provides a short overview of each technology, highlights of its strengths and weaknesses, examples of how each technology is being used in bird conservation, and links to sites with more detailed information. Users can download the entire guide or individual summaries as PDFs at:
