Audubon to present ‘One Swamp, Many Stories’

By AUDUBON - | Feb 12, 2021


The Sanibel-Captiva Audubon Society will host lecture favorite Rick Bunting for a Webinar program, “One Swamp, Many Stories,” on Feb. 18 at 7 p.m. via Zoom.

Bunting will provide a visual program on the inhabitants and their actions at a swamp near his home in Bainbridge, New York. He has monitored and photographed the wild variety of wildlife there for many years. The concentrated long-term effort on his part has allowed Bunting to record detailed activities of many species that make the swamp home. Using his excellent photos, he will share many observations that are not normally noticed by casual swamp visitation.

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 has become programs presented to a 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 receive his regular photographic email updates.

This is the seventh of eight Sanibel-Captiva Audubon Webinars to be held this season.
