The Lincoln Birders saw 39 species, taught bird/environmental games to rest of the school on Birdathon game day, and collected $94 in their penny jar. We're inspired by these fledgeling bird conservationists!
It was a Big Day of marathon birding and tweeting for teams Curlew & Screech and Cleopatra and the Stilts. With the duo finding more species and the trio raising more funds, the birds were the real winners that day.
