Birds of The Villages
by Stan Lavender 

Back by popular demand!

Due to overwhelming demand, we're thrilled to announce the return of our guide, “Birds of The Villages, Florida”. This unique creation is a laminated folding guide, featuring 167 stunning photographs of 147 species that are seen in The Villages. When folded, this meticulously crafted guide is 9.25” x 4.25”. All the photos and the graphic layouts were done by Villagers. Easy to carry on all your adventures, the guide is the ideal addition for your pocket or golf car glove box. Thank you for your support in making "Birds of the Villages" a success!
