Halifax River Audubon in this new environment: Many of our members turned to the birds and nature for escape and comfort during our forced isolation. We shared stories and observations focusing on those things we love. We found new books, learned from the internet, delved into the wonder of our own backyard. We got to know our neighbors. We shared our discoveries with them and answered their questions. We slowed down a little. We adjusted our priorities. But we never stopped focusing on the birds. We are cautiously returning to a full schedule of activities. We will adhere to best practice recommendations for all of our events. The way we conduct meetings and field trips will change for the near future.
Megan Martin spoke to us at this month’s board meeting about an exciting project that she and Carlos Correa Encarnacion and Jake Dudley are working on. They are working on a 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.You can help support this project for as little as $10 through a Kickstarter Campaign.
