Hello to all the volunteers at Pea Island & Alligator River Wildlife Refuges!
The 2013 Awards Banquet is coming up soon & many of you have asked me for a list of all the bird suncatchers that I have done over the years. Here is a list of the past 10 years, in reverse order by year. I will post the rest in my next blog.
Unfortunately, I have pictures of very few of them, as I am often too rushed to take photographs (and I'm not that great at taking pictures anyway :-) If any of you who have the older ones (or any of them!) can take me a good picture of yours, I would surely appreciate it! I would like to create a page on my website where I can feature them. More details later....you folks are the best FWS volunteers in the US, I am quite certain!
Here is the list so far, Listed by Year ~ Pea Island ~ Alligator River:
2012 ~ Yellow-crowned Night Heron ~ American Goldfinch
2011 ~ Black-neck Stilt (revised) ~ Pied-billed Greebe
2010 ~ Black-crowned Night Heron ~ Green Heron
2009 ~ Northern Gannet ~ Summer Tanager
2008 ~ Piping Plover ~ Black Bear
2007 ~ Black Skimmer ~ Cedar Waxwing
2006 ~ Canvasback Duck ~ Blue Grossbeak
2005 ~ American Bittern ~ House Wren
2004 ~ Pintail Duck ~ Pileated Woodpecker
2003 ~ Anniversary "Blue Goose" for both refuges
2002 ~ Little Blue Heron ~ Rufous-sided Towhee
That is all for now. More later (when I nail down which design was what year pre-2000 :-) Contact me at greenheronglass @ gmail if you have any pics. Please send a note first, as my dial-up can't accomodate a lot of large files at once.
I look forward to seeing everybody at the banquet Nov. 23rd!
