VENUS — Find out more about the iconic Florida scrub-jay, the only species of bird found only in Florida!

Archbold Biological Station has a Florida scrub-jay walking tour planned for Saturday beginning at 8 a.m. along the Station nature trails. The Florida scrub-jay is bold and curious and visitors may see these behaviors, as well as courtship behaviors first-hand. The scrub jays have been studied for more than four decades at Archbold making it one of the longest running population studies of a bird in the U.S. This long-term study has revealed much about the scrub jays living in Highlands County and elsewhere in Florida.
