World Migratory Bird Day Guided Walk by Friends of St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge

The Friends of St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge, part of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail,  are hosting a guided walk with experienced birders from the Apalachee Audubon and from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Corps. We will be observing nesting areas of migratory and neo tropical birds that use St. Vincent Island as a flyway stopover and /or nesting area. We hope to see least terns, oystercatchers, brown pelicans and snowy plovers. The Refuge hosts over 56 species of migratory and other birds. We also will be removing trash and debris from the Refuge that washed up during Hurricane Michael. Donations from the walk will be used , in part, to replace symbolic fencing and signage around nesting areas on the western point of St. Vincent island.
