Birdathon 2015

April 29, 2015 0 By Audrey

Birding is hard. Fundraising is hard.

But they’re both important, so I’ve joined Audubon’s Birdathon 2015

This Saturday, I’m owling from before sunrise to beyond sunset on team Put an Owl on It. Our goal is to find six target species by the end of the day: Northern Saw-whet Owl, Northern Pygmy-Owl, Great Horned Owl, Western Screech-Owl, Barred Owl, and Barn Owl.

On May 23rd, I’m sitting all day on The Great Big Sit team at Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens! I’m even guiding this one, eek! (maybe you’d like to join me?)

“Audrey Addison and Donald Gibson will be your guides as you give your legs a rest and your eyes a treat on a leisurely morning at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. Bring your lawn chair, binoculars and snacks, sit back, and relax as the birds come to you in this beautiful botanical sanctuary. You’ll learn to identify many of the 35 – 50 species that frequent this idyllic setting. ”

Consider donating to either and/or both teams! My target goals are low, so every donation makes a big difference. It all goes to a great cause: bird protection and care, and education for people.

Donate to Put an Owl on it HERE, donate to The Great Big Sit HERE.

To those that have already donated, you know who you are! – Much love and thanks!!

For the birds.
