OAS Program-Conservation­ Needs of the Florida Grasshopper Sparrow

The Florida Grasshopper Sparrow is a shy songbird that eats and sings like grasshoppers and prefers to run or hop rather than fly. They are only found in the dry prairie habitats of the Kissimmee River valley.

Like the Florida Scrub-Jay, this sparrow is a unique Florida bird. Unfortunately, its song will soon be silenced without immediate — and successful —conservation efforts.

Paul Miller, a biologist at Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park located in Okeechobee, will present on the biology, current population status, and conservation needs of the Florida Grasshopper Sparrow. Join us and learn what is being done and how you might be able to help protect this unique bird.

    Very interesting and slightly hopeful program on one of Florida's rarest birds.
