THE PATRICK SULLIVAN YOUNG BIRDERS FUND

The Patrick Sullivan Young Birders Fund (PSYBF), supported by contributions from members of the Washington Ornithological Society and from the general public, was established in 2005 to encourage and support young people interested in birding. Grants are available to individual young people or to adults to help fund group birding activities or education for young people. We define “young birders” as anyone in the age group from pre-teens through college showing a serious interest in birds and birding. Both students and non-students are eligible and are encouraged to apply.This grant program is not intended to support graduate school activities.

Birding in Colombia
By Kim Thorburn and Lindell Haggin

Kim Thorburn and Lindell Haggin spent two weeks in Colombia birding with the man who wrote the book on it, Pablo Flores. They saw hummingbirds at 14,000 feet, Aplomado Falcons and Oilbirds at 1400 feet and everything in between. Even in July near the equator, down coats felt comfy. The variety of habitats and elevations yielded a huge variety of birds and vegetation.  Come explore Colombia and enjoy the beauty.
