During the past few years our team has changed names and personnel combinations. This year we return to the 2016 magical line-up. Without mentioning names, one of us gave birth last March, so couldn’t have joined us for the 2017 race. Now her baby is 1 year old, and totally independent (as expected from chicken’s life history traits), so she is back. Our goal is to enjoy a 24 h birding together, try to break our own record, and raise money for conservation.
