TAS conducts its Birdathon every year in April to coincide with spring migration. The fundraising event invites members to create teams competing for prizes in five categories: Most Money Raised, Most Species Seen, half day and long day, Rarest Bird, and Best Birdathon Story. Our members get very competitive about Birdathon!
I decided to form my own Birdathon team this year, 2018, and am excited about the event. I named the team Birdability. See the Team Page below, found on the Travis Audubon webpage under the Birdathon banner.

I am forming my first OFFICIAL Birdathon Team. On Sunday, April 29, I will visit as many wheelchair-accessible Central Austin parks as I can from dawn to dusk, seeing as many bird species as I can. I will start at Berry Springs in Georgetown, then head south to Windermere, Richard Moya, up to Lake Creek Trail, Riata, and end at Beverly Sheffield Park, close to home. Whew! We will see how many of those parks I actually hit in one long day, but with training, a map, coffee, water, snacks, and your support, I think I can do it justice!
I invite anyone to join me, but if you cannot, please follow the link below to donate and thanks!
