May 2020 | NEWS FROM THE NEST
Dear {{FirstName or 'Friend of Audubon'}},

This year, in the face of so many challenges, we’ve had a wonderful realization—the joy of birds is spreading. 

Nearly 2,000 followers tuned in to our first-ever Birdy Office Hours to learn fun facts like, “How far can owls turn their heads?” Reporters are wondering, “Are birds doing better, now that people are keeping their distance?” And your friends and family are asking, “What bird did I just see?”

Our thoughts are with those affected by the virus. While our Audubon family is so far safe and healthy, it has been heartbreaking to lay off valued members of our team, cancel beloved programs at our centers, and postpone essential field work protecting vulnerable species.

But May brings an influx of migratory warblers, and with them, incredible new opportunities. Thanks for staying engaged, inspired, and sharing in the joy.

All the best,

Ana Paula Tavares
Executive Director
Audubon Connecticut and Audubon New York

PS: Thank you again to all who gave so generously during this past “Giving Tuesday Now.” You are what hope looks like to a bird!
Share the Love, #ShareTheShore
Thank you for helping us "Share the Love, #ShareTheShore" to spread the word that our shorebirds need help now. The campaign launch was a soaring success.

Letter to the Editor templates are now available in our digital toolkit. You can use them to share the love with your local newspaper or online media outlet.
