Birdathon 2013: Birds of Fray is back!

Edit: we’ve just changed the date of the Birdathon from Saturday 27th to Sunday 28th April 2013.

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be taking part in Tucson Audubon Society’s annual Birdathon [1], and for the third consecutive year I’ll be in charge of the ‘expert led’ Birds of Fray team.

Now in its 26th year, Birdathon raises vital funds which go directly to conserving birds and wildlife in SE Arizona, and the critical habitats they rely on. What’s more, it’s both fun and extremely rewarding. Birds of Fray won’t win the prize for most species, as I like to keep it accessible to everyone, meaning a more laid back attempt without the 2 a.m. start and 11 p.m. finish for night birds, or mad dashes across the whole region. However, it’ll still be a full and fairly intense day of dawn till dusk birding, and we should see and hear more than 100 species.

Want to get involved? Sure you do! Here’s how…

Birds of Fray will hit the road on Sunday 28th April 2013, so please put it in your diary and get involved. Your birds need you!
