NED Talks


Thanks to the Coleman family's support, we can get a literal inside look at the nesting behavior of some of the birds which call the Ned Smith Center lands their home. Check in on the livestream to hopefully get a peak of an Eastern Bluebird building its nest, a Carolina Wren poking its head in to have a look around, or an Eastern Phoebe bringing back some delectable insects to its babies! We try to keep an eye on things, but if you see anything exciting let us know at [email protected].
