The Sussex Bird Club partners with local organizations to improve habitat for wildlife and promote the knowledge and enjoyment of wild birds. These are some of the ways we have supported our community and advanced our club's interests.
One Book One Community
We are pleased to be partnering with the Lewes Public Library on a program called "One Book One Community." The goal is to bring people together through the reading and discussion of a common book, this year’s re-publication of Jennifer Ackerman's Birds by the Shore.
For more information go to Lewes Loves Books.
As part of this initiative, SBC members Rob & Carol Blye presented "Birding 101: the Who, What, Why, How, Where and When of Birding" at the library. There are 3 handouts from their very successful program:
Sussex County Locations for Bird Watching, Birding in Cape Henlopen State Park, and Field Guides and Apps for Birding.
Our "Road Runners" Bird-A-Thon team (Carol, 2 Robs, Sue, Nancy and Sharon) raised over $10,000 toward preserving critical bird habitat in Delaware!
Delaware Kestrel Partnership
President Edward Crawford presented a Go Pro Camera and accessories to Jordan Terrell, Research Assistant, DE Department of Fish and Wildlife, for use on their Kestrel Project, which is studying ways to stem the decline of this beautiful bird in Delaware. By using a "camera on a stick" a nest box monitor can more easily and unobtrusively view the interior of a nest box.
