The mission of the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove is to educate and inspire people to cherish and protect the natural world, by preserving Audubon’s artistic, scientific, and historic legacy and celebrating the conservation movement he inspired while serving the mission of the National Audubon Society (NAS), “to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.”

This week's theme is worst bird picture! There were a number of submissions on facebook and on Twitter! So without further ado here are this week's winners!
For past weeks' winners and themes go the the Snap Shot Sunday in the menu! Check them out http://johnjames.audubon.org/get-involved/snapshot-sunday !
The live video feed above shows normally shows Conrad our non-releasable Blue Jay in his outdoor enclosure.
He was taken from his nest illegally several years ago and imprinted (meaning he cannot live in the wild like a normal Blue Jay), which is why he has come to live at Mill Grove.
He is also the live mascot for Elizabethtown College and visits them several times a year for different events (which he LOVES to do!) Please take time to visit Conrad when walking the trails. He's usually pretty chatty and will walk around the bottom of his house while you visit.
