Yardies Awards

Yardie Awards recognize backyard birders who have kept track of the number of species who have visited their bird-friendly yards. This is an awards program available only to NAAS members at any membership level. Sponsored by Rich and Nanette Armstrong richarmstrong47@gmail.com

Here’s how it works:

  • 25 yard bird species reported: Certificate mailed or presented at the next membership meeting and mention is made in the Blackhawk Watch.
  • 50 yard bird species reported: A plaque is presented at the next meeting and mention is made in the Blackhawk Watch.
  • 75 yard bird species reported: an addendum to the plaque is awarded at a membership meeting and mention is made in the Blackhawk Watch.
  • 100 yard bird species reported: A second plaque – larger and more ornate than the first – is awarded at a membership meeting and mention is made in the Blackhawk Watch.
  • 125 yard bird species reported: An addendum to the large plaque is awarded at a membership meeting and mention is made in the Blackhawk Watch.

The program:

  • Encourages members to recognize the value of their own backyard birding,
  • Raises an awareness of NAAS member activities among NAAS membership,
  • Encourages people to increase bird feeders and bird friendly plants in their yard,
  • Prep folks for Project Feeder Watch: https://join.birds.cornell.edu/page/33514/donate/1?locale=en-US
  • Gather feeder watch participants for our Christmas Bird Counts (CBC)
  • Get more people who aren’t doing a yard list to start.
