** A Birdathon Story: The Chipperbirders
Spotted Sandpiper, Maxwell Julius
This story is about one of our youngest teams, The Chipperbirders. Two high school students, Maxwell and Danté Julius completed an excellent Birdathon on Mother’s Day, but these considerate young men reassured us that they celebrated the holiday the day prior with their family. Maxwell and Danté started out their day at about 7 AM and birded until after 8 PM, seeing an incredible 85 species! The Chipperbirders even took photos of a number of their species, such as the Spotted Sandpiper, Scarlet Tanager, and a life-bird for Maxwell – the Yellow-throated Warbler, which they saw right at the end of their day. Maxwell Julius reported that they had a great time bird watching, “The variety of species we witnessed was truly amazing, and all of the birds were spectacular.” The pair went to Huntley Meadows, Gravelly Point, Monticello Park, Four-mile-run Park, and Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge. We are all grateful and very proud of these talented young birders.
Please consider donating here ([link removed]) to support their team and to celebrate their accomplishments. They are so close to reaching their fundraising goal! This team inspires us to think about the future, about what birds we will still have in Northern Virginia when these two young people are enjoying their retirement. Your support helps us protect birds and their habitats not just now but in the years to come, for the next generation of birders. Thank you.
Yellow-throated Warbler, Maxwell Julius
