Audubon to present ‘Florida Reflections’

By Staff | Feb 18, 2020


The Sanibel-Captiva Audubon Society will host photojournalist Rick Bunting for a new presentation, “Florida Reflections,” on Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. at The Community House, at 2173 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

A returning speaker, Bunting will again utilize his perspective and photos to expand on nature in Florida to reveal many of its beings and their activities. Families are welcome to attend as his program is ideally suited for both adults and school-aged children.

“It has been my good fortune to be able to spend a little winter time in Florida for the past 20 years. During that time I have had many wonderful moments seeing and photographing a wide variety of birds alongside many fellow birders I have had the pleasure to meet,” Bunting said. “This program is a grateful snowbird’s way of sharing some of those special birding memories with the members and friends of the San-Cap Audubon Society.”

Bunting is professor emeritus from the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam, where he served as chair of Music Education and conductor of the Crane Chorus. His retirement has allowed him to pursue his interest in birds and other wildlife. The idea of taking pictures evolved from a simple desire to share what he was seeing. That sharing has become programs presented to a wide variety of organizations, including bird, garden and naturalist clubs, Audubon groups, and service, social and church groups.

Bunting has also developed a personal online following of those who are privileged to receive his almost daily photographic email updates.


This is the seventh of eight Sanibel-Captiva Audubon lecture to be held this season. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and parking is available at The Community House, as well as at BIG ARTS Strauss Theater.

A $10 donation per attendee is appreciated, with the proceeds after costs being used to promote conservation on Sanibel and in Florida; those age 16 and under are welcome donation-free.
