The Sutton Avian Research Center has a long and storied history of which we are proud. To continue to share our story and keep members abreast of what’s happening at the Sutton Center, and to be able to engage people through their mobile or tablet devices, we’ve decided to revamp our website to provide a picture-laden experience that captures the eye but still provides the same in-depth information we’ve always made available.
A Visual Experience
Birds are generally colorful creatures that are adorned with feathers and patches of exposed skin that run the entire visible spectrum … and beyond (birds can see near-UV wavelengths because they have a special fourth cone in the retina of their eye). We wanted to present to you their beauty in a way that inspired awe and inspection, flowing from page-to-page in a visually-stimulating experience.
Many Friends of Sutton wildlife photography enthusiasts agreed to provide copies of their stunning up-close photos of birds for us to use in this revamp. We’re so fortunate to have their generous support in this way.
We encourage you to explore the new website by clicking section headings on the top banner. We’ve kept some favorite links right up at the top, for example: “Watch” – to check out our live Bald Eagle nest cameras and “Track” – to check the movements of satellite-tracked Bald Eagles. The main section headers reflect the four Divisions of the Sutton Center: Conservation, Research, Education, and Development (C-R-E-D).
Within each Division we will be continuing to refine our content and provide the information you’re seeking, all in a fluid setup which can take you from sections on news, to profiles, to history, and more.
We have continued the “chat” option on the nest camera feed, but have included increased security features to ensure people can’t steal your chat identity or otherwise spam the open forum.
The Sutton Center is constantly striving to provide the best product to our supporters in terms of research produced, conservation goals achieved, and educational materials available. This website is the face of the Sutton Center, so we want to hear from you if you have comments that may improve a user’s visit to SuttonCenter.org. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have such a comment or have any questions.
Thank you for your new or continuing interest in the Sutton Avian Research Center! We hope you enjoy the site!
