Event Description

Susan Hannon is looking for bird photographs for a display at the library. See her email below. 


Hi all: I have been asked by the SSI Library to put together a display on the birds of SSI in the display cabinet in the entrance foyer. As part of that I would like to include some beautiful pictures of birds, hence my email to you. Below I have a list of those I want to include. Can you let me know if you have any of them? I would probably want them digitally so I can resize to fit the space. I will include photo credits. I can’t use all of these but am putting out a larger list to see what people have. Is there someone else who has lots of bird pictures on the island? Many thanks.
