The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has launched a GLOBAL BIG DAY for MAY 9, 2015, inviting everyone around the world to participate. It is very simple: submit your eBird checklists to eBird for on this day. You can fund raise, or donate funds yourself. Folks who submit 5 checklists will be entered in a contest to win a free pair of Zeiss binoculars.
WILL YOU HELP?
I shall be counting birds in my home county, SAN BENITO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, hoping for a BIG DAY!
Along with my team, I already hold the Big Day record of 155 species of birds for April 29, 2911.
In this drought-ridden year, it will be tough to top 2011.
I hope you'll do a Big Day, or submit a checklist, even from your own yard on May 9th.
Just imagine how many of us around the globe will be bonded in birding!
