The Great North-Central Washington Bird Race


Help support those communities affected by the Washington wildfires

When: Saturday,
January 16, Sunday, January 17, and Monday January 18 of 2016
Where: Omak, WA and surrounding areas

What is the Bird Race?

A team competition to see what birding team could score the
highest amount of points each day. Points would be awarded based on
Washington Birder abundance codes in the respective counties. Specific
counties in the area will be designated as a target each day. Teams would be limited to 4 birders or less.

So for example, a code 1 bird in Okanogan county scores one
point, however a code 5 bird is worth 5 points and so on.

The birding day would be defined as from any point from
midnight to 5:00 PM. Then the teams would be asked to gather at a
predetermined eatery in Omak by 7pm. At the gathering, we will tally
points and be social - thus contributing to the local economy. Teams
will most likely stay in hotels and buy fuel in the area as well. Monday is the exception as most teams will be heading home that day (results would be submitted by mail or electronically for Monday). The birding day for Monday will
end at 1:00 PM.

Target counties: Saturday – Okanogan Sunday – Ferry and Douglas Monday – Chelan and Stevens

Prizes will be awarded for the top team each day. Results will also be posted online.

Please email me with any questions. Teams are forming now and hotels in the area are filling up fast!

Thank you,
