Be sure to check up on www.feathersawry.wordpress.com for all things bird-related! I tend to get more political on this page so a nice reprieve waits for you over there. Aside from my fun new kayaking/birdwatching video, I've also recently posted a review of the Project Puffin story, a book I highly recommend. Click here or the book image below to check out the review!
Here's a short video of my kayak jaunt to a lovely acoustic melody. Along the trip I came across a busy pileated woodpecker, shy turtles, fish swirling beneath me, various waterbirds, a fledgling red-bellied woodpecker and a boisterous carolina wren. I recently bought this kayak to take on a different perspective of my Floridian stomping grounds, now splashing grounds? I call my vessel Dipper, as in the American Dipper of the west which swims deftly through the currents of rivers that splash between towering conifers. This is a much different landscape with tropical proclivities. I love my Dipper and truly urge my fellow birdwatchers to take to the water when they have the opportunity, as it brings you not only a whole different point of view, but also somehow puts you more naturally into their habitat to where they take less notice of you, as you'll see with the pileated with whom I joyously shared part of the morning with.
On Trump's 100th day, people across the country gathered in support of climate action. The People's Climate Movement in DC was joined by sister marches across the country. I attended the event here in Sarasota, Florida hosted by the Sarasota Climate Justice Coalition:
Sarasota Stands for Climate Justice!
Speakers at the rally included:
Sierra Club Manatee and Sarasota Counties
Stand Up Fight Back SRQ
All of Us Sarasota
Citizens' Climate Lobby Sarasota-Bradenton
BSc in Biology & Environmental Studies (WWC)
MSc. in Journalism (UOregon)
