The weather threatened to derail our field trip today, but we managed to be indoors during the worst of it. For the third day in a row, I was able to show people Red-cockaded woodpeckers. We were not so successful with Bachman's sparrow, the little bugger insisted on singing down in the bushes instead of using the myriad of perches available.
Afterward the woodpecker trip, we convened at the Chinsegut Nature Center for a workshop on the Breeding Bird Atlas. The group seemed pretty interested and asked some good questions. We went out around the nature center to so some actual field work and practice using the breeding bird codes. I will send out information packets to those who were in the class next week.
Big Thanks to Andy Wraithmell and the rest of the FWCC staff and volunteers who put on a fantastic festival! A lot of people had a really nice time in Florida's Nature Coast.
