It's been 7 years since Sherry and I were on a birding team together, so it will be fun to have a relaxing day birding and teaching Austin all about birds! We are 'The Road Runners'. For those who don't know, this is an annual all day birding challenge I am doing to raise funds for SFBBO. Every dollar you donate counts, so don't hesitate to give any amount that you can even if it's $5. If you donate $50 or more you can get a free t-shirt! (I think you may have to do this through SFBBO's website.) If you'd prefer to go to SFBBO's website to donate, please go to: http://tinyurl.com/bnsl5dx. For your generous donation, I will send along a trip account and photos!

Come one, come all, and donate to this very worthy cause of conserving birds and their habitat in the San Francisco Bay Area! The California Fall Challenge is an annual fundraising event for the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory. It is basically a bird-a-thon, in which I will count the birds I see during a 24 hour period. The funds raised help the Bird Observatory continue to apply science and outreach to the conservation of birds and their habitats.
My team, The Road Runners, is made up of myself, Dave Johnston, Austin Johnston (age 3) and Gina Barton. We plan to have fun while seeing as many birds as we can, all while keeping a 3-year old on task and covering as much ground as possible. If you help me, and the birds, by donating to the cause, I will send you an account of our trip and a list of the birds we saw. Thanks everyone!
