Meet our Fish Island Community Alliance Birding Advisor! Blair's contributions to FICA have been integral to our success, and he continues to share his expertise! A long-time friend of birds, Blair began his work with St. Johns County Audubon (SJCA) in earnest as a steward for nesting shore birds when he was eight years old. After several summers of stewardship and increasing his knowledge of local birds, Blair became an avid birder. He is now Chair of the SJCA’s Young Birders Committee, and began leading walks for young birders in 2020. Just this year, Blair began adding adult walks to his repertoire, and has led walks at Matanzas Inlet, Fort Mose, Fish Island, Masters Tract, and Vaill Point Park.
Blair is currently a student at St Augustine High School. He hopes to pursue future studies in the field of ornithology.
