The Sanibel-Captiva Audubon Society will host a webinar program entitled “One Swamp, Many Stories” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18 presented by San-Cap Audubon lecture favorite, Rick Bunting.

Bunting will provide a visual program on the inhabitants and their actions at a swamp near his home in Bainbridge, NY. He has monitored and photographed the wild variety of wildlife there for many years. This concentrated long term effort on his part has allowed him to record detailed activities of many species who make the swamp home. Using his always excellent photos he will share many observations that are not normally noticed by casual swamp visitation.

Bunting is Professor Emeritus from the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam where he served as Chair of Music Education and Conductor of the renowned Crane Chorus. His retirement has allowed him to pursue his interest in birds and other wildlife. The idea of taking pictures evolved from a simple desire to share what he was seeing. That sharing has become programs presented to a wide variety of organizations including bird, garden and naturalist clubs, Audubon groups, and service, social and church groups. Bunting has also developed a personal online following of those who are privileged to receive his almost daily photographic email updates.
