DVOC Supports the 2nd Pennsylvania Breeding Bird Atlas

The 2011 DVOC Conservation Grant will be awarded to the 2nd PA Breeding Bird Atlas.


DVOC members were a part of collecting the data for the atlas.  Now we will be contributing toward its publication.  This atlas will be the best yet.  It will contain two full pages on each species.  One page will contain distribution maps with comparisons to the last atlas, an invaluable conservation aid.  The second page will have a picture and narrative analysis of population habitat and trends.


Money for this grant is primarily raised by pledges and donations related to the Nikon/DVOC Lagerhead Shrikes Birding Team participating in New Jersey Audubon's World Series of Birding event. A pledge/donation sheet is available at


Please pledge or donate generously to support this great conservation effort.  Contributions are tax deductible.

Announcing the 2011 Nikon / DVOC Lagerhead Shrikes

Long-time Captain Paul Guris has announced the members of the 2011 World Series of Birding Team. Paul is thrilled that the team from the 2010 World Series of Birding  will return intact.

Zach Baer, Mike Fritz and Bert Filemyr are all experienced WSB competitors and each team member brings a unique set of big day skills to the event.

It should be another great year!
