November "Share-Athon"

Homeschoolers are probably our most connected and socially networked participants.  We imagine you belong to several email lists, regularly check online forums, and probably have many friends who also homeschool.  We'd greatly appreciate it if you could share about BirdSleuth and Cornell Lab resources to your friends and contacts.  We'd like to help more people discover the things we have to offer!

What can I share?  You can encourage your friends to:
Visit our All About Birds site to learn more about birds and bird watching

Download the FREE Homeschooler's Guide to Project FeederWatch

Purchase  the Science Investigator's Kit for Homeschoolers
Follow our homeschool blog

Become a friend on Facebook

Where should I share?  The possibilities are varied!  Facebook; blogs you write for or follow; your email contacts; lists you are a part of; your state, local, or regional homeschool lists or newsletters.  Think about the places where you get information... and the people you could share this information with. 
Here’s the November Share-Athon Challenge—create a message about BirdSleuth and share it.  Then, simply let us know who you share it with by emailing us (  Let us know where you shared it by December 1 and you will win! 
  • Share it in one place and you’ll receive a free copy of our kid's research magazine. 
  • If you share it in two or more places, we’ll send you up to 10 copies of our kid's research magazine to distribute and use—just let us know how many you want.
  • Here’s the fun part—whoever shares the word with the most places will get a prize pack that includes any one of our BirdSleuth kits, a “Diversity of Life” CD, and a set of picture game cards (approximate value of prize: $125). 

So, please help us pass the word—it’s easy—and you could win a great prize!
Finally, on this Thanksgiving eve, I'd like to wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday together.

The Wild Turkey was an important food source for Native Americans, but it was eliminated from much of its range by the early 1900s. Today, programs have reintroduced this species most of its original range. You can learn more on All About Birds! Thanks to Vicki's Nature (Flickr) for the photo.
