Is there a crash course in how to identify Florida birds?

Yes! There are many resources for beginning birdwatchers to learn how to choose and use spotting scopes and binoculars, where and when to go birding, and how to tell a warbler from a woodpecker. The Great Florida Birding Trail’s Birding 101 is a great place to start. FWCbirdwatching-basics provides detailed advice on how to track and identify birds in the field. For shorebirds, check out this photography guide.
