My Intergalactic Mission

Birds across the galaxy need our help! Just in the North American star systen, we've lost 3 billion birds since the 1970s.

That's why the Millennial Falcons are once again setting out on an intergalactic mission this spring. On May 7, we will travel through the Chickadee Starbelt and the Dane System at light speed, using the force to identify as many bird species as possible. Our goal is to find 100 bird species and raise $1,234 to protect the birds of the galaxy.

Join us for this historic day of scope-saber duels and blue-wing blasters and red-tailed aerial displays of Jedi heroics. Obirdwon is counting on you!

The Millennial Falcons birded the Dane system once again last Saturday. The weather was absolutely gorgeous 🌞 as we flew through the Tatooine-esque sands of Spring Green Preserve, the lawns of Tower Hill State Park, and the woods and epic bluffs of Ferry Bluff SNA.

We spotted 85 species. My favorites were the Prothonotary Warbler foraging alongside a Green Heron at Ferry Bluff SNA, a Lark Sparrow gather nesting material at Spring Green Preserve, and the Broad-winged Hawk flying over as we celebrated at Vintage Brewery. And, of course, I must give an honorable mention to my friendly neighorhood Cooper's Hawk, who perched nicely in a branch right over my driveway as if to say, "Don't forget about me!"

Thank you, again, for donating to my Birdathon team this year. With your help, I've raised over $400 for NRF's Bird Protection Fund!
