National Audubon Society created this great video to highlight the first ever Birdability Week!!!
Birdability is making birding and the outdoors accessible for those who have mobility and or other challenges. I'm featured alongside Virginia Rose, (founder of Birdability) Freya McGregor (member of National Audubon Society's Birdability Affinity Group Events Committee) and others. Check out my short segment here on one of my favorite Seattle urban and accessible birding spots, Meadowbrook Pond! See the full list of accessible birding locations in Seattle here.

I was thrilled to be able to volunteer during Seattle "Bird Week", a week long bird festival in Seattle created in partnership with local and national Audubon chapters as well as local businesses. The festival featured urban bird outings all over the city, bird drawing classes, BirdNote Live, music, bird themed local library events and stories all centered around birds. It was a blast! So many people got to enjoy birding in Seattle. Check out the video. Video credit: Christine Lin of National Audubon Society.
