Blue Gill Fauna and Flora

As a resident of Blue Gill you are privileged to wake up every morning to the beautiful sound of birds chirping and the wonderful sight of tall trees blowing in the wind. Have ever stopped to wonder what kind of birds they are or what kind of trees are those in the gardens out there.

Well, some of us have and over the years various residents around Blue Gill have taken the time to document the sights and sounds of Blue Gill.

We gathered together all this information and compiled a database of all Fauna and Flora seen in Blue Gill since the early 1990s.
