CROW presents next weekly Virtual Speaker Series program
Presented by LCEC, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife’s weekly Virtual Speaker Series will continue on March 9 at 4 p.m. with “The Story of Ospreys” with Claudia Burns, volunteer for The International Osprey Foundation.
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. The presentation uses photos, videos and recorded vocalizations to explain osprey behavior.
The Virtual Speaker Series programs are approximately one hour in length. The talks are presented using Zoom and are limited to 100 participants, so advance registration is required. Admission is $10 per device, plus taxes and fees. To register, visit www.CROWClinic.org or CROW’s Facebook page under the “Events” tab.
A Sanibel resident, Burns has been a nestwatch volunteer for TIOF for over 20 years. In the past, she has partnered with Bird Westall to deliver this presentation at the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge and CROW.
CROW’s Virtual Speaker Series will feature weekly programs, offered January through April, hosting professionals from across Southwest Florida who engage, educate and entertain participants with information about local conservation initiatives. For more information, visit www.CROWClinic.org.
