Did you know?

Birding ranks as one of the top ten hobbies globally.

How do I start birding?

Indian River County is a birding paradise.

Whether you’re an experienced birder or just a beginner our native birds are sure to delight. In addition to being part of the Great Florida Birding Trail, Indian River is also home to Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge – America’s first wildlife refuge. Over thirty species of birds use Pelican Island as a rookery, roost, feeding ground, or loafing area.
