Welcome to the Bham Now Nature Roundup’s “We love birds” edition.
Nothing is more relaxing and beautiful than to wake up early in the morning and listen to bird sing.
This week, one of Bham Now’s feature articles was about the birds at Birmingham’s parks. Check out the photography and the story about the wonderful work of the Birmingham Audubon Society.
We also featured this week, the Putnam Middle School Teaching Garden, the dedication of the Freedom Riders National Monument in Anniston and the new Kiwanis Club Vulcan Trail Park. Lot’s of good news and progress this week!
