Be The Naturalist

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the naturalist at one of the World Bird Sanctuary Birds in Flight programs?

During one of our presentations in the Quad Cities area World Bird Sanctuary naturalist Trina Whitener was asked by the Quad-City Times to wear a Go  Pro camera on her head during one of the flight shows. 

So now our readers can see what the naturalist sees when one of our birds comes soaring in to land on her glove. Unfortunately, the audio is very faint, but the video is definitely “close and personal”.

To experience this unique perspective Click Here.  The link will take you to the Quad-City Times web page.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page where you will find a video strip labeled “Related Video”.  Click on the arrow to start the video.
