The Birding Cup Results!

The 2011 Birding Cup fundraiser on May 6–7 was a great success! A huge thanks to everyone who birded and raised pledges for the 24-hour event, our event sponsors, and those of you who donated to Shaver’s Creek’s only annual fundraiser!!

For the first time in four years, we have a new Birding Cup champion — our very own Bad Optics with 137 species!

As pledge donations continue to roll in, we are on track to once again reach our goal of $12,000, so thank you!

While those of you who donated should receive it in the mail, please download Shaver’s Creek Director (and Bad Optics team member) Mark McLaughlin’s thank you letter below. It includes the results of all participating Birding Cup teams, as well as the winners of the County Cup, Birding Boot, and Potter Mug.
