The Great Backyard Bird Count 2021 - We have partnered with the Ormond Beach Environmental Discovery Center (OBEDC) and conducted a fun event with games and prizes and guided walks and opportunities to get up close to birds in Central Park. This year presented challenges and the park event was canceled...but we found ways to participate and get the community involved. The focus of the event is in its name - Backyard. We offered lots of suggestions on how to count and identify birds and we even listed 10 great reasons to start birding. The official count ran February 12 - 15, 2021. Check the results and videos.
Pájaros Sin Fronteras (Borderless Birds) - Megan Martin, Carlos Correa Encarnacion and Jake Dudley have reached their project funding goal for the documentary that will compare and contrast birds and the birding community in Central Florida and Puerto Rico. Both areas present challenges to avian survival from natural disasters to rampant development. Yet, birding survives and thrives, creating an economic boost that can be felt in both areas. Follow their journey.
