TS Isaac dumped a mere 2.25" on Panther Island and the rest of Corkscrew. Given the late start of rainy season, we are keeping an anxious eye on our water levels. Post-Isaac signaled a need for the next round of point-counts. For those who don't know, conservation at Corkscrew and Audubon is driven by sound science. Part of that science program at PI is a bird survey using the point count method. Over the next few weeks as I do my routes. I will go into detail about this research method and why it is used. I'll also talk about citizen science and local and national programs that people can get involved in, whether you are just starting to learn and appreciate birds or you've been an avid birder for years! There's something for everyone.
Meanwhile, enjoy some photos taken the other morning when I was out to greet the birds.
