For the past three years as you may know, I’ve participated in the Baillie Birdathon, hosted by Bird Studies Canada, the oldest sponsored bird count in North America.
This year, Bird Studies Canada announced a new logo and a name change to the Great Canadian Birdathon.
I signed up for the Birdathon on Sunday with the goal of raising $1,250. Part of the money I raise this year will go to the Beaverhill Bird Observatory, near Tofield, Alberta, and the other part to Bird Studies Canada.
This year, I’m hoping to see at least 90 species — I saw 82 last year. Now that I have my drivers licence, I’ll be able to drive myself wherever I need to go! Here are my birdathon results from 2014, 2013, and 2012.
If you’d like to sponsor me, you can visit my team page. I’d be very happy to reach my goal for my fourth Great Canadian (Baillie) Birdathon.
You can follow the Beaverhill Bird Observatory on Facebook and Twitter. Bird Studies Canada is on Facebook and Twitter too. The Great Canadian Birdathon isn’t on Facebook or Twitter yet, but I’m hoping it will be soon.
