Build A Bird with Georgia

Georgia working with children in 2007

July is summer camp time at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel. Sue Andersson, who heads up the program, invites Georgia Graves and me to do a morning program Georgia calls Build A Bird. Georgia introduces the children to what makes a bird a bird. I follow it up with how to find birds. We learn how to use binoculars and scope.

Georgia is a wonderful teacher. She engages the kids in an interactive way that keeps us all on the edge of our seats.

This year I was thrilled to a family of five had already been out birding. Their list would be the envy of a lot of birders for they had already seen Painted Buntings, Wood Storks and Roseate Spoonbills.
I would like to thank Sue for the pictures.
