Baillie Birdathon 2008!

Northern Saw-whet Owl at TTP (Seabrooke Leckie/TTPBRS) __________________________________________________________

The TTPBRS Baillie Birdathon in 2007 was a terrific achievement raising over $17,000 for the understanding and protection of birds in Toronto! This annual fundraiser is entering its third consecutive year and its growing success is due to the fabulous contributions of over 20 birdathoners and hundreds of birdathon sponsors. The Baillie Birdathon is vital to the permanent operation of the Tommy Thompson Park Bird Research Station and we hope that you will consider supporting us in 2008!

What's in store for this year?

We are very excited to announce that Bob McDonald, the host of CBC's Quirks and Quarks program, will be our guest birdathoner this year! Bob will be doing his birdathon on May 10 at Tommy Thompson Park in conjunction with our Spring Bird Festival.

Bushnell Outdoor Products and Mountain Equipment Co-op continue to step up in support of birds in Toronto and have donated some fabulous prizes for TTPBRS birdathoners in 2008. The top prize is a pair of Elite binoculars donated by Bushnell! Our registered birdathoners will also receive a one year TTPBRS membership.

The Baillie Birdathon isn't just for expert birders as this fundraiser is all about helping and learning about birds and having fun! We are offering guided walks at Tommy Thompson Park so you can hone your identification skills. Come down to the Spring Bird Festival at Tommy Thompson Park on May 10, 2008!

TTPBRS is open to the public on weekends and holidays from April 1-June 9. We encourage you to invite your friends, family and colleagues to visit TTPBRS this spring to see the work we are doing, up close and personal!

Please consider joining the 2008 Baillie Birdathon in support of Tommy Thompson Park Bird Research Station!
