2005 World Series of Birding

It has been a great off-season for the Shrikes! We are proud to announce that for the first time in our team's long, storied (if we are to believe Don's stories) history, we have corporate sponsorship. We are proud to be sponsored by EAGLE OPTICS, the leader in supplying optic equipment to birdwatchers, amateur astronomers and outdoor enthusiasts, and VORTEX OPTICS, makers of the new Stokes DLS binoculars.

We are also proud to announce that this year, 100% OF ALL DONATIONS will go directly to PRONATURA VERACRUZ (a partner of HAWK MOUNTAIN SANCTUARY). Pronatura Veracruz plays a critical role in environmental education and preservation in the state of Veracruz, Mexico. It is through Veracruz that literally millions of raptors migrate each fall, inlcuding many of the species we see here in the eastern United States.

This year's event will take place on Saturday May 14, 2005. Last year we finished closer to the top of the pack than in any previous years, ending up with 148 species. As always, we hope to surpass our previous year's total. We will bird for 24 hours straight in Cape May County and do our best not to get lost or get our rental van stuck in a ditch (again). For the third consecutive year, team members will be Don Simonson, John Hubbell, Gordon Gover and Andy Rabin.

Please take a moment to find out more about Pronatura Veracruz and their conservation programs, including the world-famous Veracruz River of Raptors program. Central Veracruz is the main flyway in the world for raptor migration. Every year an average of five million raptors are registered by their staff in two monitoring stations. This program has been running for more than 10 years, and it constitutes the longest term monitoring study of migratory raptors in Latin America.

Learn more about Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, one of the world's leaders in raptor conservation. Located in Pennsylvania, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary is one of the best places in the world to see the spectacle of raptor migration.
