CROW presents weekly Speaker Series program
Presented by LCEC, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife’s weekly Speaker Series continues on Feb. 18 with “The Story of Ospreys” by Claudia Burns, International Osprey Foundation volunteer.
Ospreys are large brown and white raptors who breed in Southwest Florida from December through April and can be seen diving for live fish in shallow waters throughout the area. Because they build their nests right out in the open, their behavior is easy to observe, but not always easy to understand. This presentation uses photos, videos and recorded vocalizations to explain osprey behavior.
Sanibel resident Claudia Burns has been a Nestwatch Volunteer for the International Osprey Foundation for more than 20 years. In the past, she has partnered with Bird Westall to deliver the presentation at both the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge and CROW.
Speaker Series programs begin at 4:15 p.m. in the Visitor Education Center, at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, and are approximately one hour in length. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for ages 13-17 and free for children age 12 and under. Space is limited, so advanced registration is highly recommended.
