PEPtBO’s goals in developing our new website were simple: to educate and inspire. We wanted to share our love of and commitment to birds and the extraordinary place that is the Prince Edward County South Shore Important Bird and Biodiversity Area.

Our plan was to fill the site with images that reflect the wonder and beauty of the natural world we have pledged to protect. And to do that, we relied on the generosity of photographers who have used their talent to record what they have seen in their visits around and within our area.

So a big thank you to all who donated their images to make our site so lovely you can practically hear the birds sing.

just this morning a vulture

nodded his red, grizzled head at me,

and I looked at him, admiring

the sickle of his beak.

Then the wind kicked up, and,

after arranging that good suit of feathers

he up and took off.

Just like that.
