It is from laughter that the Phoebes, a Miami-based all-woman’s birding group, hatched. It was at the end of a well-attended bird walk where six of us found ourselves flocked. I don’t think any of us had ever laughed so hard while birding before and we wanted that spirit to live on. The idea for the Phoebes emerged amid hugs between a group of women who’d mostly just met that morning but whose connections clearly ran deeper.
Thanks to everyone who flocked to A.D. “Doug” Barnes park this past Saturday and helped the Phoebes’ second bird walk of 2018 be such a great success! Our largest walk to-date brought out twenty Phoebes including both old and new faces and even a special visitor!
A splendid winter morning greeted the Phoebes Birding group for our first bird walk of 2019. In the company of our all-female assemblage, ranging from new to more experienced birders, we 12 women gathered at Kendall Indian Hammocks Park to bond over birds and all things nature.
