What Do Druids Do?

Ever on my quest to find my path, only seem to find myself more lost than found most of the time.
I don't really know "where I belong". I'm not a Druid (yet), and then which do you chose as there are many groups. I'm a seeker of the Mists. Yet I feel drawn to Elves and Faeries. Even then occasional attraction to say Buddah, Ganesha, Artemis, I could go on.

I was in a private FB group that studies Avalon. But I was removed at the end of a year since I did not complete 2 tasks, which all year long I thought were merely optional. I found myself running around from store to store looking for supplies to complete these 2 things, only to find that one of the parts I bought wasn't going to be sufficient. I was slightly upset by it, but I didn't have time to run around anymore to find the correct piece I needed.

I am still part of the social group for it. Recently the some questions were asked of the group owner I guess about rituals and such. She briefly explained that the group doesn't "call quarters" or "cast circles" stating they were Wiccan or Druid things. Now I'm not saying that's wrong because I know those are Wiccan practices.

But what about the Druids? So far in my meager studying, I haven't seen anything that says that Druids do these things. I don't feel comfortable questioning this in the group. I can't find any books yet locally to read up on it and even if I did find them, I don't have the means to purchase them right now. Hoping to have access to the library soon, but that will still take a couple of weeks at best to get over there. And then who knows if they will have what I need.

Anyone out there know from experience if it is a common practice of Druids to call quarters or cast circles? What about using ritual tools?
