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.
