Janthina Images donates Pelican Afternoon Canvas to Florida Keys Wild Bird Center

Pelican Afternoon

"Pelican Afternoon" - a tranquil late day moment on Florida Bay, Key Largo

April 24th, 2010  at the Murray E. Nelson Key Largo Government and Cultural Center, Key Largo, Florida ,Janthina Images participated in helping to raise funds for the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center by the donation of a 32″ x 45″ Giclee on Canvas of its Pelican Afternoon scene as part of a silent auction. The event included a presentation by the Miami Acting Company of Mel Brooks musical “The Producers” in support of the Wild Bird Center. The evening was attended by those interested in the continued mission of the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center to rescue and rehabilitate injured birds and to educate the public through up close and personal experience at the center.  The new president and board of directors chairman for the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center, Robert Gintel, organized the fundraising activities and served as master of ceremonies.

For those unfamiliar with Florida’s birdlife, The Center provides a perfect opportunity to learn and see such things as the difference between immature brown pelicans, egrets and herons, and their  appearance as mature breeding adults. Mature brown pelicans look quite dapper with their startling blue eyes, yellow crowns, sable brown hindneck, and silvery gray-brown wing feathers!! Experience is the beginning of understanding and caring about our natural heritage.

Visit and support the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center in their mission to “KEEP THEM FLYING” !! See them at: www.fkwbc.org or e fkwbc@terranova.net Physical address is: 93600 Overseas Highway, Tavernier, FL 33070
