Saturday, January 4 is the Big Day for Wild Bird Rescue! This year, we have two teams competing against one another for the most species found and the most money raised.
Team 1 is the team that has birded in the past: me, Brady Surber, Rick Folkening and Katherine Smith. Team 2 is a new entry this year made up of Sue and Warren King and Chuck Thuesen. These teams will be vying for bragging rights and hoping to raise money to give Wild Bird Rescue a much-needed financial shot in the arm. Know one of these people? If so, consider making a donation to WBR in their honor--be sure to note "Big Day" in the memo of the check or comments field in paypal. Wild Birds Unlimited of Wichita Falls will donate a prize to all donors/sponsors.
You can follow the teams' progress through Twitter by following @birdwithpenny or watching the Twitter feed on this blog. You can also see periodic updates on the Wild Bird Rescue Facebook page. The goal is 100 species. The weather is supposed to be good, so it's possible one of the teams could make it this year.
