Youth Birding Competition Results

Here is our schedule and what the kids identified at the YBC this year. S means they saw it, H means they heard it and B means both. The boys won their age group again this year, despite moving from Pre-elementary to Elementary. They took first place for number of species identified. They also raised more money for conservation than any other team in the competition, raising over $500 for the American Bird Conservancy. We intend to put the money toward ABC’s Hawaiian birds project, as someone is willing to match it, which will double the impact of our contribution.
