The first annual Race4Birds, sponsored by SFAS, was held on October 10, 2015.  Twenty-four students guided by six mentors created seven teams from Broward and Palm Beach Counties to compete for top prizes.  Seventy-six species of birds were seen during the morning outing and a reward luncheon was held at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach at noon.  

1st place - Birding Adventures - 56 species
2nd place - Nature Counts - 38 species
3rd place - Cardinals - 34 species
4th place - Broward Virtual School - 23 species
5th place - Mockingjay Twins - 10 species

SFAS President, Doug Young, stated, "The first Race4Birds event was a huge success and we expect it to get bigger each year."  James Currie, host of TV's Birding Adventures, provided binoculars and field guides for the teams to use.  Paddy Cunningham, owner of Birding Adventures, is a top Florida birder and coordinated the event.
