Message from Matt Johnson, Center Director
Greetings from the Beidler Forest Audubon Center & Sanctuary! I hope this message finds you safe and well. 

As I checked on facilities at Beidler Forest last week, I saw a small yellow bird flit past my office window. I peeked over my desk to see what it was and caught a glimpse of a Prothonotary Warbler just before it flew off. Most Prothonotary Warblers that nested at Beidler this year have already headed south, but a few still linger in the forest. I am happy to report that our staff observed a very successful nesting season for this species in the swamp in 2020. It appears that the birds and other wildlife at Beidler are doing well, and I take comfort in knowing that their nesting and migration has continued on uninterrupted (despite all the tragedy and unrest that COVID-19 has brought to the human world).Read more
