PARTICIPATE IN THE 2013 GREAT AMERICAN ARCTIC BIRDING CHALLENGE
Kirk Rogers/US Fish and Wildlife Service
Even as snow still blankets Alaska, the northward migration is already starting. Arctic-nesting birds have ranges that reach all 50 states and 6 continents, so the migrating birds you see in your backyard or favorite birding spot could be headed to the Arctic for the summer. What better way to celebrate spring and the birds that connect all of us than participating in the Great American Arctic Birding Challenge!
Get together a team of up to six birders and scour the landscape now through June 1 to find as many of the birds as possible on the Great American Arctic Birding Challenge checklist. Submit your checklist by June 1 for prizes and a chance at the 2013 title.
Did we mention there are prizes?
