On April 2 at The BookMark at Neptune Beach, the Northeast Florida Young Birders Club made its appearance at a very special event—the David Allen Sibley book signing. Mr. Sibley told us about some additions to his new Sibley Birds East (including the parasitic Pin-tailed Whydah, which now breeds in Florida) and overviewed several incredible bird behaviors and mysteries which still fascinate him (do you know exactly where the Chimney Swift winters?).
And, of course, we had our Sibley books signed. We even got a photo with this nationally-renowned birder and got to ask him a few questions. All in all, we had a great time, and we’re looking forward to the next event together!
Speaking of the next event, don't forget the Global Big Day, an international birding extravaganza on May 14th! Meet us with the Duval Audubon Society at Huguenot Memorial Park at 8:00 AM (see Activities > Calendar of Events for more details). We're looking forward to it, and we hope to see you there.
