For the love of Black Skimmer Chicks

by The 100 Companies

Rookery Bay is hosting a webinar to learn about the amazing migration journeys of seabirds, their nesting habits and daily lives.

On Thursday, July 29, join avian biologist Collette Lauzau and SWFL shorebird manager Rochelle Streker on Marco Island Critical Wildlife Area as they carefully affix young Black Skimmer chicks with individual identification markers (known as bands).

Learn the importance of this practice and how the information gained from banding helps to protect these colonies. View birds through a special live-streaming telescope and take virtual tours of some of the best places to see seabirds, from beaches to islands to mudflats.
