This issue is a standout. I’m enjoying it and want to alert you to some interesting features. The pictures alone are definitely a pick-me-up! Audubon shares the beauty of birds.
This issue contains the 2017 Audubon Photography Awards.
Birds need water. They depend on it during migration, breeding and nesting. One special report examines the Colorado River Basin. Titled “Oases in a Dry Land” this feature looks at the Gila River, a tributary of the Colorado that supports more than 200 bird species. Some of the priority species in the Colorado Basin are Sandhill Crane, Yellow Warbler, Summer Tanager and others. It is an in-depth article that also includes information on saline waters in the West.

Enjoy. I’m missing some of the summer birds since I have been unable to get the back deck cleaned up and set up a new bird feeder. Audubon is the next best thing.
