Beckham Bird Club Birdathon

This year I will be participating in the Beckham Bird Club Birdathon, an event that raises money for local organizations involved in bird research, rehabilitation, education, as well as for purchasing prime bird habitat in Kentucky. Below is a list of organiztions that will be benefiting from this year's Birdathon:

· Operation Migration

· Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission

· Kentucky Natural Lands Trust

· Kentucky Resources Council (KRC)

· Raptor Rehabilitation

· The Louisville Nature Center

· Kentucky Conservation Committee (KCC)

· Bob & Judy Peak (Bluebirds)

· Woods & Waters Land Trust

· The Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind

· Wingspan of Kentucky

I will be counting birds at the landfill on Saturday May 8th for the Birdathon. Donations are usually made by pledging a certain amount of money for each species of bird observed. Hopefully I will find roughly 60-70 birds, but possibly more if I am lucky. If you are interested in donating, please email me at I thank you, Beckham Bird Club thanks you, and most importantly, Kentucky's birds thank you.
