The Twillicks - 2016 Birdathon

In just under a few weeks time Catherine Barrett and I will be participating in the "Great Canadian Birdathon". Our team, "The Twillicks" will do the birdathon on the last weekend of May in an effort to see as many bird species as possible in 24 hours on the Avalon peninsula. The event is a way to promote awareness about our environment and help raise money to conserve birds and biodiversity across our country!

Please help us reach our fundraising goals. You can click on this link and then click the name of the person you would like to support to see our personal fundraising pages and make a donation.

Donations can be made as a flat fee (e.g. $20), or you can donate per species! We already have commitments of $2 for each species we see - which gives us extra incentive to make every effort to see as many species as possible :)

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 name used by Newfoundlanders for Greater Yellowlegs - a species I will guarantee that we see on the birdathon!

Surely there'll be some surprises, but what will it be this year?
