What are Birding Backpacks

Backpack in front of tree with binoculars, Birds of Florida book, and 2 bird pamphlets

The Nature Coast is home to many kinds of birds. Citrus County alone is home to at least 330 bird species. This is over one-fourth of the birds that have been seen in the United States!

It only makes sense that the Citrus County Audubon Society would want to share their love of this “Birder’s Paradise” with others.

These Birding Backpacks, assembled by the Citrus County Library system, include materials provided by the Citrus County Audubon Society, Max Schulman, Tom Craig, and the Citrus County Library system.

Each Birding Backpack contains:

  • 1 pair binoculars
  • 1 book Birds of Florida field guide
  • 1 pamphlet Birds of Central Florida : a guide to common & notable species
  • 1 pamphlet Florida Birds : a folding pocket guide to familiar species.
