For the health and safety of our members, friends and board we will NOT be offering any programs at Trinity Episcopal Parrish Hall or organized field trips until it is safe to gather again. As soon as Covid-19 is under control, SFAS programs and field trips will begin again.

Our membership year is September through August coinciding with our programming year. The SFAS Board of Directors has decided to extend the membership for 2019-2020 members for one year, making their renewal September 2021.

If you are not currently a member of Santa Fe Audubon and wish to join or if you would like to make a contribution to the ongoing conservation activities of the chapter, information is located here on our website under “more detail on SFAS” on the left side by our territory map.

We are in touch with members and some non-members with our monthly newsletter, The Kite. If you would like to get on the email list for our newsletter, please email me at santafeaudubonfl@aol.com.

What to do with an orphaned bird
If it is mostly fully feathered and not obviously injured, almost all of the time, leaving it alone is the best thing. While leaving it alone, try to keep children and animals away. A parent is probably nearby and has encouraged it to leave the nest, and is still bringing it food....read more
Improve the Bird watching in your back yard - by Bill Chitty
For birding in your own yard, assuming they are in their home range, the variety of birds mostly depends on the variety of available food and habitat. If you are satisfied with seeing Northern Cardinals and Tufted Titmice, all you need is a few bushes, a feeder and a bag of sunflower seed.

In the last two years, I have identified 69 different species [see list] of birds from my yard in western Putnam County, about half way between Palatka and Keystone Heights. I am only a mediocre birdwatcher, so that’s not counting the dozens I’ve seen but haven’t been able to positively identify. So how do I see 69+ species, and someone else in the same area only sees 4 or 5?

Over half those birds are simply because of habitat. But 26 different species were on or in the immediate vicinity of the feeders and bird houses on the property. Most of those 26 bird species can be coaxed into your backyard.
