It is that time of year where birds are on the move, winging their way north from their winter getaway in the tropics. To celebrate their return to the north, and to raise money to ensure that these migratory birds continue to return, I will once again be participating in the Rainforest Biodiversity Group's annual Bird-a-Thon. The Rainforest Biodiversity Group is a Madison based non-profit that works hard to protect the tropical habitat that many of our Wisconsin breeding birds use during our long, cold winter months.
Please make a donation to support my birdwatching effort on May 11. All proceeds will go directly to Rainforest Biodiversity Group. Donors who pledge $50 or more are eligible to receive a free Bird-a-Thon t-shirt. Be sure to provide your t-shirt size and shipping address in the “Comment, In Memory, Tribute (Optional): ” box on the Donation Page. You can also make a donation by cash or check. Please contact me directly for details: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I haven't decided where exaclty I will be birding yet, but if you're interested in tagging along for a segment of the day or for the entire day for that matter, you are more than welcome! Or better yet, sign up as a birder (you’ll get a free event T-shirt!) and help collect donations. If you raise the most donations, you’ll win a $250 Visa Gift Card! Also, the birder with the highest number of species will receive a North Face lumbar pack.
Funds raised during the 2013 Bird – A – Thon will primarily go towards our Small Grants Program. In 2012, Osa Conservation was the recipient of $2,000 to help build a Turtle Hatchery, where they will protect and release up to 10, 000 sea turtles annually.

All contributions are tax-deductible, since the Rainforest Biodiversity Group is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Thanks and hopefully I'll see you out there!
