We appreciate everyone who came out for our World Migration Bird Day and to celebrate the return of the majestic Swallow Tailed Kites to Florida.
Hopefully you were there when two actually flew over the center.
It was an amazing day where people of all ages learned about the raptors and what they can do to help migration alittle easier for birds.
Save The Date: Upcoming Event
If you live in Florida, you know that the weather is very unpredictable. At ARC, our number one concern is the safety of the birds. We are open to the public on most Saturdays, weather permitting.
The weather can deteriorate very quickly into thunderstorms and the birds, for their protection, must return to their mews.
Due to high heat and summer storms, our hours are Saturday's 10am-1pm, in June and July. We are closed for programs in August. Sorry for any inconvenience.
We are still available to accept birds.
Lights Out: There are some migratory birds that travel at night using stars. Having lights on, the birds become disoriented and can fly into windows and buildings.
Clean Your Bird Feeders: Dirty feeders spread disease
Plant Native: Provides food, nest sites and cover for birds. Many habitats are disapperaing
Avoid Chemicals: Birds may eat pesticides, herbicide pellets and prey that have been poisoned.
Recycle: So simple. Birds can mistakenly eat plastic trash and become ill or die. Avoiding plastic bags and bottles also reduces pollution and conserve resources.
Slow Down Driving: Give birds time to get out of the way
The kids get to make their own, one of a kind binocculars.
It's the perfect thing to help them go out and explore nature.
Supplies are limited.
