Lead a high school bird program today: took two groups of high schoolers out into the natural area to talk about birds, bird habitat and diet, birds as indicators of habitat health, and how to identify birds. I stayed around after to take photos. Here are some from today.
Taken at the the natural area at the Environmental Interpretive Center (part of University of Michigan – Dearborn).

We cannot win this battle to save species and environments without forging an emotional bond between ourselves and nature as well – for we will not fight to save what we do not love. – S.J. Gould
