And don't forget to take the Big Day Challenge and pledge an amount to your favorite local bird related organization, activity, or research.
There is no formal entry or sign-up for this. Just pledge something per bird seen/heard and then donate to your cause.
I am donating a dollar per bird that I see split between Mitch Pruitt's Saw-whet Owl research and Alyssa DeRubeis's grassland species research.
Enjoy and happy birding!
