HART BEAT, column by Hart Hart BeatRufe on things of note inside and outside St. Lucie County. Would you raise your kids in a parking lot? This plucky Mother Killdeer did. See the photo story.


NOTE FROM NATIONAL: The 114th Christmas Bird Count


Results of the 114th Christmas Bird Count are almost complete online. To get the full count summary, regional summaries, articles from participants, and more delivered right to your inbox, sign up for American Birds online at www.audubon.org/citizenscience


Audubon has moved the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) results to a digital platform by producing a FREE quarterly citizen science e-newsletter, American Birds. The newsletter contains news from all our citizen science programs, such as Great Backyard Bird Count and Hummingbirds at Home. It also includes the types of CBC information and summaries previously distributed in a print edition of American Birds.

If you have already signed up to receive the new citizen science e-newsletter, many thanks-you will receive our next quarterly edition of American Birds online in early August.

Cheers, Geoff LeBaron
Director of the Christmas Bird Count
National Audubon Society

ATTENTION! Major web site overhaul


If you have old links to items on this site, they may not work. The site will look the same, for the time being, but the structure is being cleaned up.


Sites most affected so far:

  • Hart Beat. Moved up for better search results.
  • Trip Reports. Trips more than a year old have been archived to pdfs with no working links within them.

Links within the site shoud be OK, but please notify webmaster@stlucieaudubon.org if you find one that doesn't work.
