Our own Ann Brokelman writes articles for The Beach Metro News and this time it was about how she got interested in birding, and the role Rosetta McClain Gardens Raptor Watch played in it. Thanks Ann for the prominent mention and Im so glad you joined us. Your articles bring new watchers each time the watch is mentioned, bringing us new friends and spreading the interest/obcession with raptors.
Here is the link to the story Ann did most recently
Ann getting involved has meant more exposure for the watch and allowing use of her fantastic photos over the years has brought birders and photographers alike to the watch to enjoy the wonder that is fall migration. We all have our own stories of what the raptor watch has meant to us.
With November fast approaching and some slow days then, Id love to hear YOUR story. With your permission I will post some stories on the slower days or days we dont count. Who knows who you may inspire? Maybe you started volunteering somewhere, maybe its just meant a reason to socialize and meet new friends or maybe you've been on some adventure since joining us. Walter and I will both definetly contribute, Ann is welcome to submit something with unlimited space for text(all of her special photos would slow down the entire internet Im sure). I hope YOU will share your experiences.
