Jennifer Dudek, our Vice President - Las Vegas, had her photo of a Mountain Bluebird published in a children's birding book recently released by National Audubon.
Birding Adventures for Kids, by Elissa Wolfson and Margaret A. Barker, is a wonderful guide for activities to do with children to help them connect with birds. The book starts out with information about 25 bird species that children can easily identify in most of their neighborhoods. There are activities for indoors and outdoors with tips on bird watching, feeding birds and fun games to play that educate about birds.
Jennifer took this photograph along the side of the road on Highway 64 on the way to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon back in 2017. She was not compensated for the use of her photo but is happy to be able to introduce children into the world of birding. Seeing her photograph in the actual book made Jennifer even more excited to be a small part of the big picture of encouraging future birders.
