Our Chapter was awarded the Chapter of the Year 2017 at the Audubon Assembly in St. Augustine on 21 October. What a surprise. We really impressed the Chapter's Committee with our Birds Rescue program. Kudos to all involved and much thanks to Tiffany Black for asking for help to relieve her of the full burden; for Dr. Savanna Barry for coordinating and teaching; for the rescuers including Doug Maple, Crosby Hunt, Deborah Anderson, Robin Gillies, and Anne Lindgren (and others); and to the community for calling in the birds in distress. This is a team effort and the entire team deserves full credit. For an organization as young as ours, this is especially rewarding.
The Cedar Keys are home to many shore birds, some resident and others migratory. We also have an abundance of raptors and song birds.
