    If you are in the Rockport-Fulton area during The HummerBird Celebration, September 18 - 21, check out the FAMI booth. We will be near the main entrance to the High School, next to the Chamber of Commerce booth. We plan to bring a variety of merchandise, including a great selection of books. There will be field guides to birds, butterflies, & others, children’s books, & more. One is a new book, Texas: A Photographic Journey, that features photographs of Texas wildlife & historic places. Another special book is Chasing the Ghost Birds, Saving Swans and Cranes from Extinction that tells the story of efforts to save Trumpeter Swans, Siberian Cranes, and Whooping Cranes. Be sure to come by to shop, or just to visit. See you there!

    A big THANK YOU goes out to Kirby Inland Marine, who donated two UTV's to F.A.M.I. just in time for the current turtle patrol season.  The patrollers advised they were great to have...and the patrollers found FOUR nests this season!!!
