Birds of Skidaway Island

 

On February 21, 2019 Noted Ornithological Photographer and expert on Hummingbirds, Mr. Russ Wigh  spoke to us on all aspects of birds found on Skidaway Island. His beautiful photos captivate and awe. 

Russ discussed topics including the difference between birding and bird watching,  owls on Skidaway Island, and how birds contribute to the environment.  This included a comparison of pollinators, nature’s answer to waste management, courtship and nesting, why some birds live in colonies, and bird migration. 

He is our neighbor and a frequent photographer of wildlife at the Berm.
