Raptors on the Move

Sawgrass left Pinellas Co. on the 13th of July and headed north. She has made it to the melon fields west if the Villages where there has been foraging groups of kites.  I bet she'll hang out with this crowd for a couple of weeks while she gets that essential fat layer to get her do South America.

Egmont Key Volunteer Opportunities

Egmont Key is a prime ecosystem that is important to birds and other wildlife. St. Petersburg Audubon encourages you to volunteer with Friends of Tampa Bay National Wildlife Refuges to support this valuable resource. Black Skimmers, Least Terns, American Oystercatchers, White Ibis, Brown Pelicans, Wilson's Plovers, Sandwich Terns, Royal Terns, Pelicans, Laughing Gulls and many more have nested on the Refuge islands and beaches. Beautiful wading birds grace the shoreline including the seldom seen white morph Reddish Egret.  

Besides, Egmont Key, being rich with wildlife, it has a fascinating historical significance. Learn about becoming a Bird Steward or Docent.  Visit FTBR for more information.
