The Baillie Birdathon is an event sponsored by Bird Studies Canada to research and conserve Canada’s birds. Their challenge is to identify as many birds as possible in a 24 hour period, and also to fundraise as much money as possible for Bird Studies Canada. You can choose any day (s) in May to do the Birdathon.
Last year, I counted from 4:00 pm on the 24th to 4:00 pm on the 25th, and saw 70 species. Here is a full list of what I saw: Baillie Birdathon Complete List. This year, I am hoping to beat the amount of species I saw last year, and raise more money. My goal last time was 300 Can$. I hope that this Birdathon will bring out many exciting results, and some interesting sightings.
If you are willing to support my fundraising, you may either donate a flat amount or you may specify an amount for each species seen.
As of today, I have $204 (offline donations included). My goal is $400.
Thank you for donating those who already have, and if you haven’t, please support this good cause.
