The Florida grasshopper sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum floridanus
) is a little-known, nonmigratory sparrow found in the south-central prairie region of Florida. Because of its restricted distribution, loss of habitat, and population decline, the species is currently listed as endangered.
The Florida Shorebird Database is the central repository for data collected on shorebirds and seabirds in Florida. It is an online tool with a data entry interface that allows you to submit and manage your observations. Once the data is entered, it is available to anyone with internet access thereby allowing researchers, managers, conservationists, and permit reviewers to use your information to help conserve shorebirds and seabirds.
