At Castro Nature Sanctuary
On Saturday, April 22, Wings Rescue Center hosted a bird identification class taught by noted birding author, educator, and guide Gene Blacklock. The class was a perk for members of the organization and focused on bird identification, mainly through shape, bill size, habitat, and behavior. The full-day class also looked at adaptation and diet. The diet information was especially useful to several Wings members who take care of orphaned baby birds. (Harvette Green brought the baby cardinal she is caring for to class in order to feed it every hour.) Participants also learned how to use binoculars for better bird viewing and what to look for in field guides. Blacklock recommended Birds of Texas, A Field Guide, a book he co-authored published by the Texas A&M Press.

Library Director Iris Sanchez with check
The Aransas County Public Library was one of 43 public libraries that received a grant from the Texas Book Festival, it was announced at the 2017 Texas Library Association Conference in San Antonio on April 20, 2017. The application for $2500 was written by Melodee Field, Assistant Librarian. Monies will be used to update the library's badly underfunded children's non-fiction collection. Titles to be purchased with the grant will focus on biographies, especially of computer scientists and pioneers like Ada Lovelace and Bill Gates, animals, including local favorites like the roseate spoonbill, jellyfish, and sea urchins, as well as titles that provide information on life in the military, such as My Mom is in the Navy.
