For the Birds / Florida Keys Bird Rescue

Brown Pelican, 2012

Many of my animal images are captured at wildlife rescues which offer two distinct advantages for me. First and foremost, hopefully my images and their attention, shine some light on the plight of the animals and gain support for the rescue locations. Second, it gives me an opportunity to get close to animals that are usually more elusive in the wild. (Although Pelicans, as in the second image captured elsewhere, often are used to people and won’t fly off until you are right next to them).

 The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center/Laura Quinn Wild Bird Sanctuary http://fkwbc.org/ is one example of such a rescue facility, located at  93600 Overseas Hwy (Mile Marker 93.6) in Tavernier in the Florida Keys. In the case of the FKWBC, there is an opportunity to see birds while being rehabilitated and after they have been released, since some stay close to home for a while.

The Sanctuary as well as many other animal rescues are listed in my Blog Roll to the right with links to their websites. Anyone wishing to know more, details on visiting or just wanting to donate to their great causes is encouraged to do so. They are the front- runners in the difficult but noble task of protecting many of Mother Nature’s endangered creatures and they deserved to be recognized….and supported.

    Hi! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I
    had to ask. Does operating a well-established website like
    yours take a lot of work? I’m completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal every day.

    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

    Thankyou!

    My brother recommended I might like this website.
    He was entirely right. This post actually made my day.
    You can not imagine just how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

    obviously like your website however you have to take a look
    at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to inform the reality on the other hand I will surely come back again.
