Bird Man Walking

Did you know that Brad Storey and his trusty Siberian Husky are walking across America for birds?  Yep.  Brad and his dog, Xena, began their journey last month on Jekyll Island, Georgia.  His goal is to raise money for the National Audubon's Important Bird Areas (IBAs) Program.  He has already traveled over 300 miles on foot and is currently somewhere west of Montgomery, AL.  His final destination?  San Diego, California.  That's over 2,300 miles!  They will be stopping at local Audubon chapters and Important Bird Areas along the way.  You can support them by joining them for a portion of their journey or by making a donation to the Audubon's IBA Program.  If you live along the route, check with your local Audubon chapter to see if they'll be passing through.  Also be sure to follow Brad and Xena on their Facebook page and on the Bird Man Walking blog.  Good luck Brad and Xena!!!
