This was Michele Kline's day at the Baby Bird Shower that Citrus County and Hernando Audubon's hosted at Chinsegut Conservation Center. Michele brought ambassador Spencer Barred Owl and a new ambassador, White-winged Dove. She gave good advice about when not to bother baby birds that seemed to be without parents. There were tables of items for sale and the monies received were all turned over to Michele so that she can continue to do the awesome work she is so good at.
Prior to Michele's presentation, Bev Hansen led 20 interested birds on a brief tour around the premises. Red-headed Woodpeckers were in abundance, several species of Warblers, male and female Summer Tanager, Yellow-throated and White-eyed Vireos were seen to name a few. The excitement for the day was the Blue Grosbeak.
