Every year, thousands of people around the world watch and enjoy the birds that live around us. Because birdwatching is such a popular pastime, different citizen science projects have sprung up to add scientific value to the hobby. One such project is eBird, started by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in 2002, which has grown to be a favorite for birdwatchers. By submitting checklists, which can include photos and sounds of birds, people can keep track of what birds they’ve seen in a convenient online format. Those checklists are also used by scientists to help better understand bird migration, distribution, and population trends.

Leslie Blasing has been one of those Wintertainers that has adapted quite well to social distancing. She was one of the first to go online with her shows last year when we all had to start quarantining. He Facebook was always busy with her daily shows on her back porch, or out on her street depending on the weather.
Blasing is a pleasure to watch with her energy, connection to the crowd, and love of music. Her songs span seven decades of country, classic rock, 50’s and 60’s…. and some of todays music as well. South Padre Island has been her home for 25 years. She has won multiple awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018.
