Hello, fellow CT birders!
There has been a good response to the call for birders to participate in the
Mega Bowl of Birding in New Haven County, scheduled for February 5th (super
bowl Sunday). But, there is room for more teams! The deadline for signing
up for the event is being extended to Wednesday, February 1st. Please
consider joining in on this fun and new event. You won't regret it!
Brief announcement for the event:
The Mega Bowl of Birding!
This fun and friendly event involves birding in teams of 3-4 people anywhere
in New Haven County. The teams try to see as many species as they can on
the day of the event. Each species observed has a point value, with one
point for the most common species to five points for the rarest species. At
the end of the day, everyone meets to share stories and tabulate the
results. Prizes are given out to all participants, with special prizes
going to the teams accumulating the most points or most species on the day.
There is an option to obtain pledges or make a voluntary donation to the
host organization, the New Haven Bird Club, or any other conservation
organization of the team's choice. Advanced registration is required:
birders must register for the event by Wednesday February 1, 2017. The event
will be held on Sunday, February 5, 2017. The end of the day celebration
will be held at the Kellogg Environmental Center in Derby. Dinner will be
served. To register: contact the Mega Bowl Coordinator: Chris Loscalzo at

More detailed information for the event can be found on the New Haven Bird
Club and COA websites.
