Birdathon registration under way

April 18, 2013

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — The Potomac Valley Audubon Society (PVAS) is now accepting registrations for its third annual Ruth Ann Dean Birdathon, which will be Saturday, May 11, and Sunday, May 12.

The Birdathon is an annual event intended to cap a week of activities commemorating International Migratory Bird Day.

It is open to anyone with an interest, regardless of experience or expertise at birding. People can participate as part of a team or as individuals. The goal is to identify the highest numbers of bird species you can find within PVAS's territory in any 24-consecutive-hour-period during the weekend.

PVAS's territory includes the Jefferson, Berkeley and Morgan counties in West Virginia, and Washington County in Maryland.

There is no entry fee.

To register and to get full information about how the Birdathon works, go to the PVAS website at www.potomacaudubon.org/imbd.html or contact the event coordinator, Sandy Sagalkin, at monsansagalkin@myactv.net.
