It is my pleasure to welcome you to a new season of St. Lucie Audubon Society meetings and field trips! I look forward to seeing each of you during our meeting season from October 2015 to May 2016.
Cooler weather is on the way, but migration began in August. Some of our members post their personal bird lists on eBird, a free and convenient way to keep track of all your old and new sightings (ebird.org/content/ebird/). Currently, David Simpson has the lead here in St. Lucie County with 236 species. David will be our speaker at our February 4, 2016, meeting.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the October 1, 2015, meeting!

EAGLE WATCH TRAINING Audubon EagleWatch seeks information between Oct. 15 and the end of May about active Bald Eagle nest locations and possible disturbances or threats to nesting activities. If you’d like to adopt an eagle nest to watch in St. Lucie County, there are 2 workshops in October (one in Palm Beach and one in Martin) where you can learn about the program. Click for info (pdf)
