Birdathon Dudes

Blogger Phoebe here ( I'm the cute one in the photo),

On Sat. we had a visit from Rich and Scott, some nice birders who were participating in the NH Audubon's Birdathon (where you compete to see how many bird species you can see in a day.) They were participating in the "non-motorized" division so they rode their bikes here.

The number one reason they came here was to see me, of course, 'cuz I'm perfect. They also thought I lived in a great bird place and they wanted to add more species to their list for the day. Don took them around and they were happy because they got to add 6 more species to their list. They saw 26 Short-billed Dowitchers, 2 Greater Yellowlegs, 7 Spotted Sandpipers, 12 Semipalmated Plovers, a Killdeer and several Spotted Sandpipers.

After some cool drinks and goodies and admiring me, they were on their way. They wrote and said they saw 126 species for the day. Hope they win. And guys, you can come back anytime and pet me.

Update: Rich and Scott won the "human-powered" division of the NH Audubon Birdathon and they even beat all but one of the motorized teams! Congrats Rich and Scott!!
