BIRD RESCUE UPDATE

Dear bird rescue volunteers,

I hope you are all well. I know that many of you have left Cedar Key for the summer but I still thought you would be interested in updates about the program, which has had a very active winter and spring season. Since Christmas, the Bird Rescue program has accepted 50 calls! This past week, three birds (one osprey and two pelicans) were released back in to the wild after being rescued and rehabbed thanks to your efforts!

Thank you so very much to all of you that have helped respond to a report and/or transported a bird. Keep up the great work in the community! 

For those of you still in town, please keep an eye out for requests for assistance from our fearless phone tree leaders. We have 28 total people listed on the phone tree so if we all share the burden, the load should be light on any one person. Even excluding seasonal residents, we still have 18 folks listed.

BIRD WATCHING IN CEDAR KEYS NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE WITH CEDAR KEYS AUDUBON
May 26, 2017
….a note from Cedar Keys Audubon
Secretary Libby Cagle

MAY 26 LIBBY PIC 1

 

On our way to watch birds return to Snake Key to roost for the night, Mike O’Dell of Tidewater Tours cruised by Atsena Otie and Sea Horse Keys where we were treated to small flock that included red knots, marble godwits, sanderling, and dunlin sandpipers.  In all we saw 20 species on this trip ranging from roseate spoonbills to a reddish egret. 

The weather at first was a bit iffy but worked out well in the end.  The rainbow was the icing on Anne Lindgren’s birthday cake.  As usual Doug Maple did an excellent job identifying all birds that came by us and gave a brief lecture on nesting shore birds that tied in to Ann Paul’s presentation from April.
