Bird of the Month - July 2021

Ospreys are a resident bird of BHI as they are seen year-round. They are a unique raptor species as their primary diet is live fish and their ability to dive into the water to catch them. While out birding, look at the unique M-shape of an Osprey’s brown and white wings while they are soaring or diving. These birds also have brown and white markings on their heads, which is very different from other raptor species such as Red-tailed Hawks and Bald Eagles.

Every month we are highlighting a bird species that can be found on Bald Head Island. Through our partnership with Lew Wilson Art, new prints and ornaments that showcase the featured bird are available to purchase monthly. A portion of proceeds will help to benefit our mission. Collect all 12 of the birds, and receive a free print of the collection from Lew Wilson Art at the end of the year! To purchase this month's artwork, visit:   www.lewwilsonart.com/online-store
