The Twillicks - 2017 Birdathon

Catherine Barrett and I will be doing our third annual birdathon at the end of May!
This is an all-out 24 hour effort to see as many species as possible on the Avalon peninsula.
The event promotes awareness of our natural world and helps raise money to conserve birds and habitat across our country!

Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $1787. You can click on our team page here and then click on our names to see our personal fundraising pages and make a donation :)

In 2015 we tallied a record-breaking 92 species and then in 2016 topped it with 95 species!

Can we reach 100 this year...

Donations can be made as a flat fee (e.g. $20), or you can donate per species!


A tax receipt will be generated automatically via email. If you prefer you can give your donation to Catherine or myself directly (cash or cheque) and we will forward it to Bird Studies Canada.

A portion of the funds we raise will be returned to this province to Nature NL.

Thank you for your support!

"Twillicks" is a local name used by Newfoundlanders for Greater Yellowlegs - a species guaranteed to be seen during our 24-hour extravaganza!


Last years highlight came in under the wire with less than 5 minutes remaining in the 24-hour period:
