Support the ABA-Leica Subadult Wheatears at Champions of the Flyway

Champions of the Flyway, held annually in southern Israel has quickly become one the world’s premiere bird races, with teams from around the world racing for 24 hours to come up with the biggest list along the migration highway that is the eastern Mediterranean. And more, the event doubles as a fundraiser for Birdlife International’s programs that seek to put a stop to illegal hunting and trapping of migratory birds in the region.

This year the ABA is excited to be sponsoring a team for the first time, one made up of birders who all have connections with the ABA’s Young Birder programs. Aidan Place, Marquette Mutchler, and Johanna Beam are tackling this prestigious race and raising money for this worthy cause as the ABA-Leica Subadult Wheatears. And they need your help.

Follow the appropriate links for more information about Champions of the Flyway and the ABA team. To donate to the team, see their Just Giving page here.

You can also learn more about Champions of the Flyway from creator and director Jonathan Meyrav on a previous episode of the American Birding Podcast.
