2013 Great American Arctic Birding Challenge Kicks off March 1!
Did you know Arctic-nesting birds have ranges that reach all 50 states and 6 continents? What better way to celebrate spring and the birds that connect all of us than participating in the Great American Arctic Birding Challenge! Round up a team of up to six birders and scour the landscape March 1–June 1 to find as many of the birds as possible on the official checklist. Did we mention there are prizes? For a checklist, prizes, and rules, visit Audubon Alaska's Great American Arctic Birding Challenge webpage. Let the games begin!
