2021 Spring Big Bird Day
Bird better insulate themselves by fluffing their feathers on cold mornings.
APPLE RIVER — On May 8, Terrence Ingram, President of the Eagle Nature Foundation (ENF) conducted a Spring Big Bird Day at Apple Creek Prairie, Arboretum and Woods. He started conducting this annual bird count in 2016 to document the loss of birds to the agricultural sprays and the devastation that these sprays have been causing to the bird life in the area, as well as the damage to the insect and plant life, which is the lifeblood for the birds. Each year he has been seeing fewer and fewer birds, both in numbers and varieties.
