Tulsa Audubon Society's Backyard Big Day
May 2-3: Backyard Big Day Weekend Contest
Since we cannot safely conduct a field trip, instead of our normal Big Day Count we will be having a Backyard Big Day Weekend Contest. This will be a contest for everyone in Tulsa or surrounding counties - Mays, Wagoner, Okmulgee, Pawnee, Osage, Washington and Rogers. You will submit a list of birds seen in or from your own backyard, in other words your yard list, for May 2nd and/or 3rd. By midnight May 3rd you will submit your bird list to [email protected] and we will randomly select the winners from all those checklists submitted. We strongly encourage you to submit your list to eBird and then forward that list to us, but we will accept non-eBird lists too. A random choice puts everyone's backyards on an equal footing, so get out the back door and count your birds, whether you get 5 species or 50! There will a grand prize of a $100 gift certificate to Wild Birds Unlimited, and there will four $25 runner up gift certificates. We are doing this to support one of our favorite local businesses! Please note Wild Birds Unlimited is open for curbside pickup on Tues-Sat from 10-4 (and you can window shop during that time, they will hold up items for you to check out!) We will announce the winners at our online May TAS meeting.
