According to, 339 species of birds have been reported in St. Johns County in which St. Augustine is located. This guide is meant to help the birding novice identify some of the common birds in the area that can be seen near bodies of water. There are guides available that are inclusive of all bird species, but they can be overwhelming. This book introduces 32 bird species, when they can be seen in the area, and public places where they can be reliably seen. Some of the species are state or federally designated as threatened and are included if there is a good chance you can see them. If the species is not common in our area, it is not included it.

The first part of this book contains images and information about selected bird species which newcomers and visitors to the area may not be familiar and want to identify. Birds are grouped into categories of similar species. Each bird species begins with the common name followed by the Latin name. There are pictures of the birds with descriptive text. Included are when and where to see the bird species in the St. Augustine area based on the author's experience. The second part identifies public places in and around St. Augustine where the birder can reliably view these birds at the appropriate time of year. Lastly, resources are listed that can be used to learn about local birds and an index listing the birds in alphabetical order.
