Birding festival at the Shrimp and Grits Festival

Last week was a blur. I was preparing to set up a booth at the Jekyll Island’s Shrimp and Grits Festival. Here is the booth. One of my goals for this Georgia birding festival is to involve the surrounding communities in our Seventh Annual Georgia’s Colonial Coast Birding and Nature Festival. On Friday, I put the booth up. I settled in for the weekend.
What a weekend it was! Friday night, Coastal Georgia Audubon members Jimmie Ann, Janice, Barbara and Carole came by. They brought me some shrimp & grits. Thanks you guys.
Man, was that good.

Saturday Janie Smith of Wild Birds Unlimited came to help me. She brought our store mascot, Jay B. Watcher. He was the showman. Everyone smiled at him. A few gave him a hug. We talked to people from all over the place. There were festival booklets and posters to pass out. Children got a flier and a shell to remind them to come to festival’s Nature Day Saturday October 10. The next three and half weeks are going to be wild. Come see us at the Seventh Annual Georgia’s Colonial Coast Birding and Nature Festival October 8-12,2009.
