I would like to offer an enormous thank you to Kathy at Still Life With Birder, Mia at On The Wing Photography, Featherfields, Birder_Katie, David at A Calgary Birder, Bob at Birds Calgary, Bob Parsons from the Edmonton Nature Club, and readers Susan and Richard for their recent donations to my Baillie Birdathon campaign.
I am grateful for all the wonderful donations and amazed to have raised almost twice my goal. Thank you all so very, very much. As a reminder, half of the money I raise will go, as I have designated, to the Long Point Bird Observatory in Ontario, which does very important work in Canada. The other half of the money goes to Bird Studies Canada; and the James L. Baillie Memorial Fund for Bird Research and Preservation, for amateur ornithological research within Ontario, and “projects by individuals and organizations that increase understanding, appreciation and conservation of Canadian birds in their natural environment”.
Thank you to everyone for your wonderful support!
Now that it is May, I’m getting very excited for the Baillie Birdathon, and am also excited because I may finally be getting close to getting a scope, which I have hoped for for the past year.
