My wife is a Birder and is going nuts to see a Painted Bunting. I know they are in the Jacksonville area. We will be in the area toward the end of March, can anyone recommend a park or trail where we might have a good chance of viewing this bird? PLEASE !

Birding gets people outside. I have been friends who are birders that have taught me a lot. The Christmas Bird Count is a great thing to get involved in.

Contact the local Audobon Society in JAX and they will be able to give you very specific info.

The Painted Bunting can be found at the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. The visitor center is on Fort Caroline Road; stop in there and ask for a bird list. Also inquire the best trails for birding.
