Hello, fellow CT birders! The 2nd annual Mega Bowl of Birding in New Haven County (Mega Bowl II) will be held on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018. It's not too early to start planning for it! A brief announcement follows:
The Second Annual Mega Bowl of Birding in New Haven County!
This fun and friendly event involves birding in teams of 3-4 people anywhere in New Haven County. The teams try to see as many species as they can on the day of the event. Each species observed has a point value, with one point for the most common species to five points for the rarest species. At the end of the day, everyone meets to share stories, enjoy a delicious dinner, and tabulate the results. Prizes are given out to all participants, with special prizes going to the team accumulating the most points on the day. Advanced registration is requested: birders should register for the event by Sunday, January 28, 2018. The event will be held on Saturday, February 3, 2018. The end of the day celebration will be held at the Kellogg Environmental Center in Derby.
