Plover Patrol goes to the Jekyll Island Green Screen Event

It was so much fun sharing the Plover Patrol with so many people at the First Green Screen Event on Jekyll Island.  If you have not seen the film "Chasing Ice", do see it.  Beautiful photography. 
Here is Abby Sterling and I in front of her research poster on Wilson's Plovers.

The Venice Area Audubon Society comes to Jekyll

The Venice Area Audubon Society group came to Jekyll.  They came in yesterday February 5.  We saw Avocets, Whimbrels and assorted shorebirds at the Wild Viewing Tower on the causeway.  Then I lead them over to Amphitheater for nature's  nightly heron show....(the birds come into roost)
Then this morning we went out to southend beach for gulls, terns, skimmers and the Wilson's Plovers. 
      It was fun showing this wonderful group Jekyll's birds.
