Please Support the Monarchists!

In just a few hours, at midnight, The World Series of Birding will begin.  Throughout May 10, 2014, teams will search for birds in a friendly competition, with each team raising funds to support a conservation cause.

The Monarchist birders and support staff, l to r:
Kashi Davis, Meg Hedeen, Michael O'Brien, Louise Zemaitis, Lu Daniels,
Ron Rollet, Mark Garland, Paige Cunningham.

Once again the Monarchist team will compete, raising funds to support the Cape May Monarch Monitoring Project.  We compete in the most environmentally friendly category, hoping to win the "Carbon Footprint" award by traveling only by foot and bicycle all day.  A few days after the event (once we have rested and recovered), we will post the results of our efforts.

Here's a great opportunity to support the research and education work of the Monarch Monitoring Project.  Find out how you can lend support at this webpage:
