Speaker: Bob Montanaro, Wildlife Photographer

The Florida scrub-jay is an attractive and personable bird with many unique qualities. It is a cooperative breeder, often living in extended family groups with young from previous years staying around as helpers to help raise and care for the latest offspring. To illustrate the life history of the Florida scrub-jay, Pelican Island Audubon Society office manager and wildlife photographer Bob Montanaro spent considerable time documenting the Florida scrub-jay behavior through still photographs and digital video.

“The Secret Life of the Florida Scrub-Jay” brings to life the often-elusive behavior of these birds and why the preservation of their habitat is one of the best ways to preserve the Florida scrub-jay along with the myriad other species that make the scrub their home.
