This coming Saturday, May 9, is the World Series of Birding, a 24-hour event where birders from around the world congregate in New Jersey. Within the 24-hour time, birders try to find as many species as they can, without leaving the state. In past years, I have competed with the 1000birds.com team, but this year, I am part of the American Birding Association/Leica Tropicbirds team. To learn more about my team visit: http://www.aba.org/yb/tropicbirds/photos.html and to learn about the event: www.worldseriesofbirding.org
The teams collect pledges which go towards bird conservation. To sponsor the Tropicbirds, visit http://www.aba.org/yb/tropicbirds/pledge.html
Now I am off to do some scouting!
