Your Gift Will Make a Difference! Dear ABA Member, It's Spring—the time of year that many of us look forward to more than any other. We all love seeing and hearing the food tide of birds that passes by all too quickly. As excited as I am to experience the wonders of another Spring migration, I'm equally excited to know that 2015 will be the frst Spring for a brand new crop of birders. People who are just now thrilling to the colors of orioles, buntings, tanagers, and warblers. Many of them will be kids, but quite a few will be retirees, too. And I'm happy to say that the ABA will be there for them, as it has been for birders for almost half a century. I am writing today to ask that you invest in the future of birds and birding by making a gift of support to the ABA's Conservation and Community programs , an effective suite of initiatives focused on the birds and birders of tomorrow. Your gift will support a reenergized vision for Birders' Exchange, building on founder Betty Petersen's legacy of supporting conservationists in Latin America and the Caribbean, who study and protect our beloved Spring migrants, in addition to resident tropical birds. As successful as Birders' Exchange is, we need new approaches, partners, and supporters to ensure its next quarter century – your gift will help that happen. Your support will also help fund our popular Young Birder programs which have an unparalleled track record of developing leaders of the birding community, a proud legacy that will only grow more valuable in the coming years. With your help, we'll be able to advance all our Conservation and Community programs, including promoting our Code of Birding Ethics, Federal Duck Stamps sales, Songbird Coffee, and supporting the volunteer network of citizen scientists that fuel North American Birds. Please, during this very busy birding season, take just a moment to help ensure that the excitement of Spring is passed on for the next generation of birders and beyond. Good birding, today and far into the future, Jeffrey A. Gordon, President American Birding Association Call: 800-850-2473 • Give Online: The ABA is a 501(c)(3) non-proft.
