Needing a Permit to Own Birds in Florida

When I moved from Saipan to Florida, I had no idea I needed a permit to own birds there. I never needed one on the west coast, but when I heard that a friend almost had his taken away and now hated Florida, I understood why of course and decided to look into it so I wouldn't face the same fate.

The permit costs $50/year to have. You can find it here.
