In early January, BRYBC Field Trips Coordinator Andrew Rapp had the excellent idea for the young birders to challenge themselves to see how many species we would see total in the month of January. Several of the young birders went around collecting pledges for the challenge, and many people either made a flat-fee donation on behalf of the challenge or pledged a certain number of cents per species. In this photo we see Gabriel and Andrew at the February meeting tallying the number of species seen in the month of January. 139 species were seen and the club raised $449 for the club. Thank you to all of those who pledged, we really, really appreciate it was a lot of fun!
