Reflections on Birdathon 2016

2016 was really the year of the Birdathon for me. I’ve been doing this event since I was a baby birder in 2013, and started co-leading a team (the Raven Maniacs) last year. This year I dove even deeper into Birdathon madness by creating a new team. And not just any team, but a two full day “gonzo” team for women birders called Owl Be Damned. So my spring was mostly about planning, recruiting, and fundraising for two teams with two very different routes.
