QCBC member Marcia Abrahams presents "South Florida Birding"

Marcia was born in the Bayswater section of Far Rockaway, NY. Attended Far Rockaway High School and Queens Borough Community College. She purchased trims for Garment Manufacturers for many years and due to the changing conditions, left and worked in the Advertising/Media field. Her interest in birding began with backyard bird feeders while she lived in North Babylon, NY and at Wakodahatchee Wetlands and Green Cay Wetlands while visiting her parents in Delray Beach, FL. She became an avid birder when she moved to Boynton Beach, FL in November 2011, joined Audubon Everglades and took many road trips throughout Florida with birding and wildlife photographer friends. She also led bird walks as a Volunteer Naturalist for the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge in Boynton Beach, FL on Saturday mornings. She moved back to Bayside, NY in October 2019, joined the Queens County Bird Club due to a recommendation from Bob Dieterich. She continues to go birding around the metro New York area and her quest to add new species to her Life List.
