Birdathon 2018 — Another Successful Year

It takes a large group of folks to make the Birdathon the success it has been for more than 30 years. This includes our teams, enthusiastic volunteers and, of course, those who are willing to sponsor a team or individual or just make a general pledge to the Birdathon. Thanks to all of these efforts, $24,320 was raised this year. We were able to fund all of the grant requests serving to fulfill our mission to promote the stewardship and enjoyment of the birds of central Indiana.

Thank you to all who came out and braved the weather today!

Here's the eBird Checklist from this morning’s bird walk at Garfield Park. The rain was immense, but that didn't keep the birders or all of the birds away. We did get some notable species, including one of my favorites, the Chimney Swift! - Jessica Helmbold ABAS Education Chair
