Annual Birdathon Fundraiser Nears Its Close

California Spotted OwlThe bird-watching part of the SFVAS Birdathon is almost over. Sadly, only one team made the estimated target so far. I believe bad weather affected a few of our more adventurous teams who drove inland. However, if you are curious about how your team did, look here!

Team Barth……………….. 56 species (70 was the estimate)
Team Hardesty…………. 115 species (135 were hoped for)
Team Kotin……………….. 108 (115 was the estimate)
Team Langton…………… 51 (near the hoped for 60)
Team Moore……………… 127 (our high achiever; he had estimated 115)
Team Oppenheimer….. 40 estimated and 40 seen; right on target
Team Willis……………….. hoped for 100 but saw 89

These reports just in (14 May):

Team Ohlenkamp……….60
Team Herron-Knode……54
Mean Team………………..78
