Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Christmas Bird Count sponsored by National Audubon SocietyThe St. Johns River Water Management District is partnering with the National Audubon Society for its 117th Annual Christmas Bird Count. Several district properties will host birdwatchers during the nationwide event.“District properties play an important role in protecting our water resources, but also provide wildlife habitat,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. “We are happy for an opportunity to collaborate with Audubon and birders in our area on this annual census in recognition of the value of these lands for bird habitat.”This nationwide wildlife census is organized by the National Audubon Society. Each count takes place in a 15-mile diameter circle where every bird sited is included in the count, giving an indication of the total number of birds in the circle that day.The district regularly partners with local chapters of Audubon Florida to benefit Florida’s natural resources. For the Christmas Bird Count, the district helps by providing access to land and, in some cases, providing staff to participate in the count. Multiple district properties will host count circles, including:Lake Apopka North Shore in Lake and Orange countiesMoses Creek Conservation Area in St. Johns CountyParts of Hal Scott Regional Preserve and Park in Orange CountyParts of Seminole Ranch Conservation Area in Seminole CountyParts of Canaveral Marshes Conservation Area in Brevard CountyData collection during the count provides not only an assessment of the long-term health and status of bird populations but also contributes to the district’s species list for each property.The nationwide, volunteer-driven event runs from Dec. 14 to Jan. 5.

Dolores Guadalupe García Escamilla, of Estéreo 91 XHNOE radio, died from her injuries on 16 April after a being shot 11 days earlier.”The climate of terror and impunity for which journalists pay the price in Mexico’s northern states is reaching alarming and unacceptable proportions”, said Reporters Without Borders.”Once again we call for a serious investigation to unmask not only the killers but those who order these repeated bombings against the press. We also hope that the special prosecutor’s office, set up at a federal level, will support the judicial process”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.Natividad’s van was parked in front of his home a few streets from the newspaper’s offices when the interior was completely wrecked by a crude bomb. Police found a Coca-Cola bottle and a petrol-soaked cloth inside the vehicle. “I have no enemies or fight with anyone. I am afraid because I don’t know where the threat could come from”, the editor told Reporters Without Borders. Natividad also said he had not received any warning, although a colleague specialised in criminal cases had been sent threats that were intercepted by the police. Dolores Guadalupe García Escamilla had also been threatened before being attacked.An article in Primera Hora about drug-traffickers might have been behind the attack on Natividad but he pointed out, “This case goes back eight months and it was reported on by all the media, based on information provided by the authorities.”Witnesses said they saw a man of around 1.70m in height wearing a striped shirt fleeing the scene after the explosion. The Primera Hora editor has been receiving Tamaulipas state police protection since 12 May.
