Meet Macaws and Screech Owls at this seaside bird sanctuary

Blue and gold Macaws are absolutely stunning birds. Courtesy of one of the region’s bird sanctuaries, you can meet one in person while learning about their diets and habitat.

Seaside Seabird Sanctuary located in Indian Shores will provide educational lectures dedicated to the tropical birds. The sanctuary’s own Macaw, Nemo, will join Director of Operations Keith Wilkins at the presentation.

Presentations take place every Sunday and Monday through August 19, 2019. Admission to the Sanctuary is always free and open to the public. You can learn more by visiting the official Facebook event page.

At last! Our #whitepelican who we have been following since her arrival nearly a month ago was moved outside into our pre-release enclosure today! After being admitted nearly unresponsive seeing this made our entire morning. The countdown begins to whether or not she'll be ready in time for her migration north but with that small flight our hopes are up!

Other events of note include an Easter Egg hunt at the Sanctuary on April 13 beginning at 8am. Birders would also do well to keep the Screech Owl demonstrations on their radar, which occur every Tuesday and Thursday from 1:30-2:30pm.

The nonprofit organization is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of sick and injured wild birds. The Sanctuary provides a home to non-releasable birds in a safe and healthy environment.

Seaside Seabird Sanctuary is located at 18328 Gulf Boulevard.
