The NORTH SHORE BIRDING FESTIVAL highlights the St. Johns River Water Management District’s 20,000-acre Lake Apopka North Shore, an Important Bird Area and the top eBird hotspot in Florida. Among the over 60 field trips, most are for birding but a number are tailored for photographers. Field trips have excellent local and out-of-town leaders, and include a Young Birders trip, birding by bicycle, birding by kayak, search for Black Rail, Crested Caracara, Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Fulvous Whistling-Duck and overwintering northern-breeding ducks and others for your life list.

All levels of birders, nature photographers, and other outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the field trips. College students and Young Birders can participate in many trips for half price. With no additional overall festival registration fee, field trips average $50. The festival is run by Orange Audubon Society and all proceeds go toward its nature and environmental education center or related educational programs.
