On May 19, 2019, CWAS will be hosting our annual Birdathon. Not an expert birder? Not a problem. Every sighting counts! Our goal for the day is simple record as many species of birds as we see or hear in a 24 hour period; past years have this number between 90 and 110 species.
2019 is the year CWAS breaks with tradition. Instead of visiting Forest Park and Jamaica Bay, a new destination was chosen, Doodletown. Lisa and Chris will be meeting in the trail head parking lot at 9am, contact us for directions. Loaner binoculars are available.
While we have enjoyed both Forest Park and Jamaica Bay in the past, and will no doubt do so in the future,
it feels like it’s time to try something new. Doodletown is a fun destination and will surely delight. (Bathrooms are not an easy option so please plan accordingly!)
If you want to participate but are unable to join us, record your observations from your backyard or favorite birding spot. When you are done birding for the day, email your list to firstname.lastname@example.org so they can be included in our official list.
Donations can be made as a flat amount or on a per species basis. Check on our Facebook page for the species list. All proceeds from the Birdathon will be used to support our educational outreach and Hog Island Scholarship programs.
Checks should be payable to Central Westchester Audubon Society and mailed to PO Box 359, White Plains, NY 10602. If you wish to donate via the Paypal link on our website, please add “Birdathon 2019” in the comments.
Hope to see you at Doodletown!
