Field Trips

Birdwatching enthusiasts can spot an impressive variety of species, including herons, ospreys, and the iconic roseate spoonbills, while exploring the mangroves and marshes. These field trips offer not just an opportunity to witness the beauty of nature up close but also serve as a valuable educational experience, highlighting the importance of conservation and preserving these fragile ecosystems for generations to come.

Flocking Social Hours & Banquets

Our flocking social hours provide a delightful setting for bird enthusiasts to unwind, share their experiences from the day’s field trips, and indulge in delicious catered food. These gatherings offer a chance for like-minded individuals to relax, exchange stories, and build connections. 

Presentations & Keynote Speakers

Get inspired by passionate ornithological students and professionals who will present their unique findings and contribute a fresh perspective to the field. Our meeting isn’t just about disseminating knowledge; it’s an opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of avian wonders, get motivated by the passion of fellow enthusiasts, and contribute to the future of bird research and conservation efforts. Join us and be part of an enriching experience that will deepen your understanding and appreciation of our feathered friends and their impact on our world!

About Our Meetings

The Florida Ornithological Society holds two meetings every year—one in the spring and one in the fall. Meetings are open to all members, their guests, and the general public. The meetings usually are held at various locations in Florida, although the Society has also met in an adjacent state (Georgia or Alabama) or even the Bahamas. In Florida we try to rotate meetings to accommodate members in all parts of the state. The Vice President typically arranges the meetings and serves as liaison between the Society and its local hosts.
