The Florida Grasshopper Sparrow is uniquely ours. As a federally endangered bird found nowhere else in the world, the population in Kissimmee Prairie is heavily researched.
Found only in the dry prairie ecosystem of central and south Florida, this tiny endangered bird lives here year-round. They earned the name "Grasshopper" Sparrow because of the high-frequency song the male sings in spring to attract a female.
