I will try to best my bike big day from last year (153 species). This year, I'm going to try a different route--I will bike out to Blue Mound and camp out there the night before to try for grassland species, Louisiana Waterthrush, and other specialties that can't be found closer to town. All told, it will be about 115 miles of riding, with about 80 of those taking place during the big day. 

The adventure is for the fun of it, and also for a great cause: to raise support and awareness for Wisconsin's birds.

Please consider supporting me with a pledge per species or donation. No amount is too small--even small contributions add up! This year the Great Wisconsin Birdathon aims to raise $100,000 for bird conservation in Wisconsin. Your contribution supports the priority projects of the Bird Protection Fund.

  • Conservation of endangered Kirtland's Warblers, Whooping Cranes, and Piping Plovers
  • Research, education, and habitat protection in Central and South America
  • Monitoring of waterbirds
  • Community engagement and habitat protection through Bird City Wisconsin
  • The Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas II

The Great Wisconsin Birdathon has raised over $500,000 for Wisconsin's birds since 2012. We have done so much, but there is still so much more to do. Thank you for joining me in making a sustainable future for Wisconsin's birds!
