Migrating Birds of North Florida

Migrating Birds of North Florida

Thursday September 19 – 6:30PM

Fall bird migration is upon us! Join Master Naturalist Gary Whiting and Expert Birder Cathy Murphy at Wild Birds Unlimited in Fruit Cove for a look at many common (and not so common) migrating bird species. Because Northeast Florida is a “flyway” for migration, we often enjoy many seasonal avian visitors from fall through spring. Learn how many species journey thousands of miles, some from the Arctic to the tip of South America.  You’ll enjoy stunning photos, amusing anecdotes, and interesting facts about how you can observe and attract many of these migrators to your own back yard.

Space will be limited to the first 45 responses. Email wbujacksonville@yahoo.com or call (904) 230-3242 to reserve your seat. Presentation will be at Wild Birds Unlimited, 450 State Rd 13 North, Suite 108, St Johns, FL 32259. That’s next to Publix in the Julington Village Shopping Center.
