S P R I N G M I G R A T I O N VOLUME 69: NO. 3, 2016 • MARCH THROUGH MAY 2015 DOUBLE ISSUE Dear ABA Friends, In the past year, the American Birding Association has run exciting, challenging, life-changing programs for hundreds of younger birders, the people who will lead our community into its future. In 2018, do you want to see us do more of this work, or less? Throughout 2017, we have reached out far beyond our membership to provide help, guidance, and education to the wider birding community, through our Code of Ethics, through free web services like our Rare Bird Alert, Birding News, and "What's this Bird?," as well as our newly-launched and widely-lauded American Birding Podcast. Do you want to see us provide more of these services in the coming year, or less? This year, we've acted as advocates for the interests of birders, leading other organizations many times our size in the effort to save Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge and hundreds of other prime birding spots from being damaged and potentially closed off by ill-advised new border wall construction. In the coming year, do you want to see us do more of that kind of speaking out for birders, or less? If you've answered " more " to any or all of the above, please act right now to help make that happen. A tax-deductible gift of any size will help. The point is to do what you can, now, and not let the opportunity pass by. As the ABA's 48th year draws to a close, I'd like to thank you for all that you've done, through membership, through donations, and through giving your time and energy, to inspire all people to enjoy and protect wild birds. And I'd like to challenge you to do even a little more in the New Year. I wish you a joyful holiday season and a new year filled with great birding. Yours, Jeffrey A. Gordon, President PS: 2018 will be here before you know it. Today is your chance to make a difference in the ABA's future! A gift of $50 will really help, but any amount is greatly appreciated! HELP US DO MORE AT THE ABA! PLEASE RESPOND TODAY WITH YOUR GENEROUS GIFT! Phone: Website: Mail: 800-850-BIRD P.O. Box 3070 Colorado Springs, CO 80934
