The winners of each competing category are as follows:
Most species (half-day): Master Birders (88 species)
Most species (full-day): Gone Pishing (130 species)
Rarest bird: Phoebe Friends (Red-headed Woodpecker in Gillespie County)
Best Birdathon Story: Kat Ross with “Crazy Good Birds at the Coast”

We extend a huge thanks to everyone involved in Birdathon for making it such a special and fruitful fundraiser. Special thanks goes to Virginia Rose and Sharon Richardson for their hard work coordinating Birdathon this year. Last, but not least, thank you to Quack’s 43rd Street Bakery, Window Alert, and Christina Darlington from Wild Birds Unlimited at Lakeline for your generous donations.
