Wood Warble Coffee Benefits ABAS

Jeff Canada, one of our fellow Indiana birders, is roasting coffee right here in Indiana. His coffee is Bird-friendy as certified by the Smithsonian. The coffee is quite delicious and the Bird Song Blend benefits ABAS. You can purchase coffee at https://woodwarblercoffee.com/collections/conservation-partner-coffees. Jeff has been roasting coffee since 2017 and it combines his passion for coffee with his passion for birding. Grateful Dead fans might also notice his passion for that group showing up in a few of the names for his coffees. If you have a passion for birds and coffee as well, you might give just give Jeff's coffee a try. We think you'll enjoy it.

What a fun morning on the photography walk at Eagle Creek Park - Indy Parks and Recreation! 20 people joined Amy Hodson and surprise guest leader Mike Timmons for a morning to practice bird photography. 📷

After talking about camera settings and techniques at the Ornithology Center, we spent time at the famous “seed pile” where the group was treated to some Red-headed Woodpeckers coming down to pose.

Stay tuned for some bird photos from the day! High fives to everyone who came out! 🙌🏻
