The Mega Bowl of Birding is now just two weeks away! It's time to sign up
for this fun and entertaining event! Sign-up as a team of three or four
birders or sign up individually and be assigned to a team. Here are some
of the reasons to participate in the event:
It will be fun! You'll go birding with friends wherever you want within New
Haven County and see lots of good birds. There are sea ducks, shorebirds and
gulls along the shore, and raptors, woodpeckers, and other hardy winter
birds inland for you to see and enjoy.
You'll be rewarded for your efforts! Once you're done birding in the late
afternoon, you'll be welcome to attend the compilation dinner where you'll
get a fine meal and receive prizes for your participation in the event.
You'll also get to hear about the experiences of other teams and find out
which team achieved the most points earning their place on the Mega Bowl
You may see some rare birds! Teams will be out birding all over New Haven
County. They'll be calling in their sightings right away, giving every team
the opportunity to see a rare bird soon after its sighting. Or you may find
a rare bird yourself!
You will get some fresh air and exercise! Super Bowl Sunday has become
known for sitting around all day watching TV. We have the opportunity to
change that habit and demonstrate that birding is a fun and worthwhile
activity in its own right.
Sign up soon and start planning your strategy for the big day.
To sign up, contact me at
closcalz at optonline.net or 203 389-6508.
Provide me with your team name, your team leader's name and contact #, and
the names of the other team members. Good luck! See you on February 5th!
