Scrub-Jay Update

Two New Juveniles
This year our Scrub-Jay family had two new juveniles that are thriving. Come see how they mimic Mom, Dad and their younger sister. Very gregarious!

Banding babies and parents/siblings
Our search continues to find an available bander to band our five jays at the Trailhead. Most of you who volunteer here regularly know the importance of the banding program. This is one of the critical aspects of knowing where your birds travel and why. It is also an integral part of the restoration process. If you or someone you know is permitted to band Scrub-Jays in Lake county please get in touch with us.

Lake County Scrub-Jay Survey
The Nature Conservancy along with Lake County and Lake County Water Authority have wrapped up this years "Jay Watch" program. This is the first county wide survey since 2003. Jay Watch is a citizen science program monitoring threatened Florida scrub-jays with the goal of providing information for more high-quality habitat for more scrub-jays. Results from the survey will be forthcoming.
