On February 14 through 17, the Omni Amelia Island Plantation’s Nature Center presents “The Great Backyard Bird Count.” This is an important citizen science project that helps to estimate bird populations worldwide, as well as helping to identify any trends in migration, populations, and diversity.
Binoculars and field guides will be provided for each tour offering. Join naturalists on a local off-property adventure in search of as many species as can be found! Tours will depart the Nature Center at 9 a.m. and head south to explore some nearby birding “hotspots,” including Spoonbill Pond, Talbot Islands, and Ft. George Inlet. Contact the Nature Center at (904) 321-5082 to reserve your spot.
