Birdathon 2012 Was a Success!!
Barbara T. Ross

Birdathon day—May 12, 2012—was perfect and a grand total of 181 species (14 threatened and endangered) was observed in New Jersey with 15 Washington Crossing Audubon teams responding. The list can be seen at www.washingtoncrossingaudubon.org. Congratulations to Charles Brine who observed the highest number of species.

Thank you to all donors who contributed to Birdathon this year. The pledges are not all in yet; so far the total to date is over $5200. It is not too late to send in a contribution if you forgot! Just seven WCAS members (5 of them on the WCAS board) solicited their relatives, friends and neighbors and brought in 53% of the total to date. Top solicitors will be awarded prizes at the September program meeting. Prizes awarded will include three recently published books generously donated by Princeton University Press: How to Be a Better Birder, by Derek Lovitch; Petrels, Albatrosses, and Storm-Petrels of North America: A Photographic Guide, by Steve N. G. Howell; and The Princeton Encyclopedia of Birds, edited by Christopher Perrins.

See the list of species identified in the Birdathons from 1993 to 2012.
