Welcome to the Spoonbills Global Big Day Page!
We're going for 250+ species on May 9th - join us!
Please consider joining our team, helping to fundraise, making a donation, and/or simply birding "with" us on Global Big Day (May 9th, 2020).
This fundraiser is organized by BirdsCaribbean in support of their in-house, peer-reviewed scientific publication, the Journal of Caribbean Ornithology. The Journal has been providing us with robust science for 32 years and counting, and now they need our help to offset some of 2020's operating costs.
This will be a fun event for a great cause. THANK YOU for getting involved in any way you can!
*Given the safety concerns the COVID-19 virus presents for doing Global Big Day counts, we recommend that you bird in your backyard. If it is safe to go out on May 9th be sure to choose birding locations that (1) comply with your municipality’s COVID-19 safety guidelines (i.e. social distancing and travel guidelines), and (2) comply with your personal safety preferences. And so whether you we will be birding at a local park, within your own backyards, or from your bedroom windows, we will all be enjoying the opportunity to distract ourselves with some safe, fun birdwatching. Additionally, we will all be birdwatching for a great cause that brings us together!
