List of birds seen in Sarasota/Bradenton, Florida (April 2022) (1 Viewer)

United States
Every year, over spring break, I visit my grandparents in Sarasota, Florida. This year I was most excited because I have gotten into birding quite a lot more since last year. I got a decent amount of life birds, most of which were singlular encounters. These are identifiable using the key.
