Pining for Birds Arcadian Adventure
Posted 04 - 02 - 2015

8 a.m.-noon, Saturday, May 9


 


Join ornithologist Cliff Shackelford and horticulturist Greg Grant on a bird and nature walk as they hike through Greg’s beloved backyard Rebel Eloy Emanis Pine Savanna and Bird Sanctuary in rural Shelby County.  With annual prescribed burns, regular thinning, and standing snags, Greg maintains this 22 year old, eight acre stand of loblolly pines as a habitat for cavity dwelling birds and pine savanna wildlife.  He named it for his outdoor loving grandfather who formerly owned the property.  Plan to see brown-headed nuthatches, pine warblers, eastern bluebirds, tufted titmice, Carolina chickadees, Carolina wrens, eastern phoebes, and an assortment of woodpeckers.  Prepare to hike approximately one mile on dirt trails and wear comfortable shoes. Transportation is provided and will leave from the Ina Brundrett Conservation Education Center at the SFA Pineywoods Native Plant Center (2900 Raguet).  Group size will be limited. $30 for SFA Gardens members. $35 for non-members. For reservations contact sfagardens@sfasu.edu or call (936) 468-1832.
