Editor’s Note: The staff of the Fernandina Observer extends warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. In order to allow our staff to spend time with family and friends this holiday season, we will take a brief break but rest assured, we will be up and running again on Monday, January 3, 2022.
Editor’s Note: According to Michael Leary, the French named the Painted Bunting a Native American bird “nonpareil” meaning without equal. Michael grew up in Fernandina back in the days when the island was sparsely populated. As a young boy, he delighted in exploring the woods and waterways of Amelia. His deep appreciation of the island’s natural beauty is reflected in his interest in preservation of our natural environment. We thank Michael for his contribution to the Fernandina Observer.
