NEW RULES for the 40th Annual Bloomin' Birdathon
Usually, individuals or teams count as many species of birds or blooms as they can in a 24-hour period between April 15 – May 31, 2020 and get sponsors to pledge a set amount of money per species seen or a flat amount for their efforts. This year we are changing all the rules because all the rules have changed.
- You can count over multiple days (April 15 – May 31) but no more than 24 hours in total.
- Feeder counts and Bird Cam counts over a 24-hour period are encouraged for those who don’t want to go out.
- Children can count anything and/or use one of our games as often as they want.
- People who raise or donate $100 or more will receive a free ticket to a special ANS Reunion Event sometime later in the year.
