Gustavus Birding Big DayMay 15, 2010

Time: May 15, 2010

Wherever you are in the world, make a list of the birds you observe on Saturday, May 15. At the end of the day, send in your list to Bob Dunlap '08, Arboretum Naturalist at Gustavus Adolphus College. Send email to When submitting your list, please include where you saw each species in as much detail as you want. Simply "Japan" will suffice, as will "across the street in my neighbor's backyard in St. Peter, Nicollet County, Minnesota." Feel free to include any other information pertinent to your observations/excursions. The goal is to compile a list of as many species as possible from around the world.

The "home" team at Gustavus will begin before dawn at 5 a.m. at the Interpretive Center. Students/faculty/staff are most welcome to participate in this global event!
