A reminder that tomorrow July 1 is the 100th birthday of the RAOU/Birds Australia. Help us celebrate in three ways tomorrow:

1 All Atlassers have been asked to do at least one survey tomorrow - up to 8000! A great snapshot of our birds.

2 Sending in a list of all the birds you see tomorrow will earn sponsorship up to $1000 for HANZAB and endangered species. (The VicGroup will give $2 a species seen by someone and $5 if it's in the Action Plan for Endangered Birds. The sposorship is per species not per sighting.) Obviously to earn the full $1000 we need coverage Australia-wide.
Send your list in to 
All Atlas sheets for July 1 will be included.

3 the person or team seeing most birds on July 1 will get a prize given by Andrew Isles Natural History Books.

There's a special prize for the child under 11 who sees most birds on the day.

You don't have to be a member of Birds Australia to take part (but I hope you are!)
You are welcome to solicit extra sponsorship from friends or family

Full details in the June Wingspam and on the BA webpage

Thanks and enjoy the day
