Audubon Center for Birds of Prey -Bald Eagle Stamp Program

This is a fund-raising project to help offset the cost of caring for injured and non-releasable raptors at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey. Collectable stamps are sorted, appraised and sold to collectors by volunteers; 100% of the proceeds go to help the birds.

                                        Collectable stamps include:                                                                                 
                                        Any stamp collections 
                                Any foreign, commemoratives, airmail or special handling stamps
                                Any State or Federal hunting and fishing licenses stamps
                                Mint plate blocks (especially older ones)  
                                Please, no current single-letter rate: this includes Christmas Stamps

We accept both canceled and uncanceled stamps. We can sell only undamaged stamps. We cannot use stamps that are cut, punched, torn, scuffed, thinned, with part of sides cut off, or with heavy smeared cancels.  No metered stamps please (printed indicia).

Please cut the stamps from the envelopes, at least ¼” around the stamps to avoid damage. Do not include postmark. Exceptions: with commemorative envelopes, First Day issues and old (pre-1960) envelopes, send the entire envelope with the stamp attached, as the envelope may also have significant value.  

Please include your name and/or the name of your organization printed legibly on the inside and outside the package.  Donations will be acknowledged with a charitable contribution tax receipt. Donors wanting a professional appraisal, for tax purposes, are responsible for obtaining the value of their donation from a professional.  Audubon stamp volunteers are not license appraiser’s; they can not put a value on any stamps donated.

.Rare Bird Alert - Report any rare or unusual bird sightings to Your cooperation and  help in keeping the public informed about what birds are in the area is very important.  These records are sent to the Florida Ornithological Society for submission  to the  Florida Field Naturalist publication.  They are also sent to the American Birding  Association for inclusion in their reports.  
BCAS Backyard Bird Tally
The BCAS Backyard Bird Tally is an event conducted by our local members for the pleasure of observing birds in ones own yard throughout the entire year.  We started this event back in 2005 and now we are in our 9th season.  The rules are very simple.  One must see or hear a bird in your yard or observe in from your yard.  Each species counts one.  If you do not want to use your yard, one can also report birds from a designated area like a park, golf course, etc.  In this special event, we keep track of our yard or area birds the entire year and report the totals after our CBC dinner has been completed.   Give it a try, and maybe you could win too.  Backyard birding is great fun!
