Thankfully, we made it through the heart of hurricane season unscathed. Although we had a close call with Hurricane Dorian, we remained safe.

Skidaway Audubon’s Landings Bird Cam project has been a hit with viewers from around the world since its inception in 2014. Two cameras were placed near a bald eagle’s nest, which was 75’ up in a tree in the Plantation area of the community. The cameras were placed to stream two different views of all the action in the nest. It wasn’t known at the time, but the tree was under attack by pine bark beetles, and it died about a year later, slowly dropping all seven of the large limbs that contained the nest bowl.

Kids aren’t the only ones who go trick-or treating! Join us on Saturday, October 26 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Kids’ Fishing Lagoon (located behind the Fire Station at the intersection of Log Landing and Westcross roads) to learn how birds go trick-or- treating every day to find their food. We’ll even make some bird feeders to take home to deter birds from finding the remnants that might get dropped from our human Halloween adventures (this activity involves handling peanut butter).

The official day for trick-or-treating at The Landings will be Thursday, October 31. As well, the official hours for trick-or-treating are from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

   Below are some safety tips:
