Hernando Audubon Offers Birding Adventures for Beginners

Hernando Audubon offers a beginner program for those interested in the adventures of birding.  

As birding becomes more popular for those of all ages, the excitement of spotting birds is also a way to learn more about Florida’s wildlife. 

“We never know what we are going to see,” Linda Vanderveen said. “Of course, the winter months are the best, especially nice during the migration time because we get some unusual birds, like the Indigo Bunting.”

Talking The Talk

There are a lot of people out there who apparently think that whitetail deer are simply cute little mutes wandering about the forest.  Well, although they aren’t the loudest of critters, they’re far from mutes.  The fact is, they have a pretty fair range of vocalizations from social grunts, a “hey how are ya” type of call, to a shrill wheeze, sounding the alarm of danger.  But, one call that’s been mighty important for deer hunters to learn, is the bleat.
