Here is the link to the Sarasota County Scrub Jay site - https://www.scgov.net/ResourceProtection/Pages/ScrubJay.aspx
Venice is located in Sarasota County. If you are looking to purchase a vacant lot, then you would want to check the property on the scrub jay list. If you are looking to purchase an already existing home, then scrub jays would only have an effect if you are planning to add a structure that requires a building permit.
I would be happy to answer any questions you may have or check a property for scrub jays if you would like. If the property is in a scrub jay zone then you can pay to have a review done. If there is evidence of scrub jays then it goes to the US Fish and Wildlife Department for review to determine if the lot is buildable or not.
