The ‘2020 Gone Birding’ Scavenger Hunt, sponsored this Spring by Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society (DOAS) has been a great hit! “We seem to have struck a chord with people – when all sorts of activities have been cancelled, this has provided something to do either as a solo activity or with small family groups. The fact that you can do it anywhere also helps!”
DOAS received just under thirty official entries in time for the May 8 deadline, but the information remains online at doas.us/2020-gone-birding for anyone who would like to do it just for fun!
The following people held the highest scores in each category and prizes are currently being coordinated:
Shamus Murphy, Cooperstown, NY – 4-14 – Novice
Samantha Misa, Delhi, NY – 15-30 – Novice
Danielle Tucker, Delhi, NY – 15-30 – Intermediate
Shane LeClair, Denver, NY – Over 30 – Novice
Tom Austin, Walton, NY – Over 30 – Intermediate
We are grateful to all our participants for your enthusiasm, your wonderful comments and your photos!
