The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife weekly Virtual Speaker Series presented by LCEC continues on Tuesday, March 9 with “The Story of Ospreys” by Claudia Burns, Volunteer for International Osprey Foundation.
Ospreys are large brown and white raptors who breed in southwest Florida from December through April and can be seen diving for live fish in shallow waters throughout the area. Because they build their nests right out in the open, their behavior is easy to observe, but not always easy to understand. This presentation uses photos, videos and recorded vocalizations to explain osprey behavior.
Virtual Speaker Series programs begin at 4 p.m. and are approximately one hour in length. The talks will be presented using Zoom and are limited to 100 participants so advanced registration is required. Admission per device is $10 plus applicable taxes and fees. To register, please visit www.CROWClinic.org or CROW’s Facebook page under the “Events” tab.
CROW’s 2021 Virtual Speaker Series presented by LCEC features weekly programs, offered January through April, hosting professionals from across Southwest Florida who engage, educate and entertain participants with information about local conservation initiatives.
