About the Author

Bill Pantry has lived in Florida since 1978, when he and his family moved from their native Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Bill's primary interests in Florida field ornithology are the status and distribution of the state's avifauna, and ensuring proper documentation of rare birds, with a particular emphasis on exotic species. A member and incoming Chairman of the ABA Checklist Committee, Bill compiles bird observations for North American Birds and Florida Field Naturalist, the ornithological journals of the American Birding Association and the Florida Ornithological Society, respectively.

Bill has authored or co-authored more than 150 articles, reports, CBC compilations, and book reviews on Florida's avifauna. Since 1976, he has participated in 125 Christmas Bird Counts, all but one of these in central Florida. Bill works for Archbold Biological Station in central Florida, studying a color-banded population of Florida Scrub-Jays at Lake Wales Ridge State Forest. He is a member of the American Birding Association, American Ornithologists' Union, Association of Field Ornithologists, Florida Ornithological Society, The Nature Conservancy, and Wilson Ornithological Society.

We used this book as our itinerary planner for a recent 8 day trip to South Florida. We found the detailed directions to be so helpful to us in finding our target birds!

Excellent guide to the birding sites of Florida, especially to those birders chasing local "specialties".

Although a little dated, it's thorough. A must for someone planning a birding trip to Florida. I like the ringed binding, which allows the pages to lie flat.

As far as I can tell, no one knows bird hide-outs in Florida like Bill Pranty. His guide provides so much easy-read detail and seems to leave no stone unturned in terms of providing readers with the places to go throughout the Sunshine State to find a wide variety of birds. This book is older now, but still the one I keep in my backpack when I head to Florida. Just can't find the kind of detail on birding Florida in any other book.

This was not the friendliest bird guide for a state that we have gotten but was quite helpful in finding some great locations for birding!

This book is VERY complete and filled with accurate information! Quite a necessary book if birding in areas that are new.

This book seems to be geared towards visitors and new residents of Florida and not for resident birders, although I did glean some good information which I will use to plan a few weekend trips, so overall I was satified with my purchase. Basically, a guide like this just tries to put too much info into one book and alot of local detail gets left out. With all of the sighting info that's availiable online, I think that an author could condense that along with local sites and make 3 regional books for a state the size of Florida. This would help the locals and visitors as most people don't travel or vacation statewide.
