Editor’s Note: Kirsten and Hall Snyder remind us that birding can be done in spite of COVID and it offers good exercise.     According to the Snyders, ” These two bright and beautiful little song birds” moved through the island last spring.   “Palm Warblers are usually found in lower bushes, often on the ground, while the Yellow-throated Warblers will call continuously as they forage up higher, preferably in palms and pines.”

The Snyder husband and wife team have always loved photography, birds, and being outdoors. When asked who took each photo, Kirsten said they swap their camera so often they don’t always know. Kirsten and Hal started their website in 2008, focused on bird photography and other interests, to share the amazing sights they witnessed in nature.

The Snyders call Amelia Island home having retired here in 2014. They donate images and book proceeds to non-profit environmental groups and are published in books, magazines, and calendars around the world. While it is certain that they will continue to miss more wonderful shots than they capture, the thrill of watching the beauty of flight will always remain.
