You can choose any day in May to do the Birdathon. Last year, I counted on the 30th and 31st. I’ll probably count on the same days this year, because in northern Alberta in May, spring migration is still underway for some species.
This year, I’ve earmarked half of the money I raise to go to the Edmonton Nature Club of which I’m a member with my family. Everyone at the ENC has helped me so much with my birding endeavors and has been so supportive, so I thought I should return the favor as best I could.
The other half of the money raise goes to BSC and the other half to whichever group is designated. If you would like to sponsor me, you can visit my team page. I’d be very happy to reach my goal for my third Baillie Birdathon. Last year my goal was $500 and I was very happy and thrilled to raise $2,408 for my local naturalists society. A huge thank you again to everyone who supported me for the past two years.
