Frontera Audubon Birdathon, 4/17/10

Well I'm behind on my posts so here goes. In an attemp to raise funds Frontera Audubon held its first birdathon on April 17. My team, The Visayan Wattled Broadbills did pretty good coming up with 147 species during the alloted twelve hours and raised nearly $900. The Broadbills are Pat Heirs, my wife Honey and her two nurse friends, Richard and Ann, and yours truly. The only team with more species was Father Tom's team. Just wait till next year! Here's what we saw.
