[http://www.audubonaction.org/images/content/pagebuilder/Osprey.jpg]    Follow the Raptors on their Fall Migration<http://www.audubonaction.org/site/R?i=gMLPNvwtWMqy7WPVs8zViw>
Seeing one hawk, eagle or falcon can make a birder's day. Seeing legions of them heading south for winter can leave you breathless. In North America, 22 species of raptors like this Osprey join this remarkable river of birds—some flying thousands of miles to warmer climes. Find great fall migration spots.<http://www.audubonaction.org/site/R?i=U0lzD_A56tivmEHikpWpCg>

Next month is the premiere of "The Big Year," starring Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson. Based on Mark Obamscik's best-seller of the same name, the movie lets millions of movie-goers in on our little secret—that birding is cool! Audubon served as a technical advisor to the film. Read Audubon Magazine's interview<http://www.audubonaction.org/site/R?i=JjZ4TOJm8LRAS-oXE6yz3Q> with the stars (and see the magazine's new website!) and watch the trailer<http://www.audubonaction.org/site/R?i=8vrz94CEsSWVjGoONF4dBQ>.

TAKE ACTION
Help a Spoonbill by passing the Spill Bill<http://www.audubonaction.org/site/R?i=ccD9uJiZ0cKRjaAUxd_O4w>
Remember the BP Blowout? Recent storms on the Gulf Coast kicked up a new batch of tar balls, a reminder that the damage to precious wildlife habitats is not over. Help wildlife and people by Demand Congress send the billions in penalties directly to affected communities for restoration and recovery.<http://www.audubonaction.org/site/R?i=pbpQ-YmPymYxl8YaAJ2jnA>

TIP OF THE MONTH
Buying Binoculars<http://www.audubonaction.org/site/R?i=duawvUXV0JJkEp7Ks4s2Hg>
Following birds in flight requires a good pair of binoculars. Picking among the sizes, optics, prices, and brands is crazy-making. Luckily, Audubon Magazine has great recommendations. Find the best binocs for you. <http://www.audubonaction.org/site/R?i=Hh-2xTnm9PBvP-zIs5SlmQ>
