Florida Ornithological Society

The Florida Ornithological Society, sponsored by the Florida Audubon Society, was established October 14, 1972, at a meeting of more than 100 ornithologists and serious birders held in Lakeland, Florida. The purpose of the new organization is to promote field ornithology and to facilitate contact between those persons interested in birds.
Excellent and informative web site with some really good photographs of Florida birds taken by members.
