See, I wasn’t kidding. At the bare minimum, It really costs $200 per year to keep woodcreeper.com and badbirdz-reloaded running. Thanks to two lovely donors, one of which doesn’t even use the site to track migration, we are up to $60. For that I am grateful, but if everyone who does use these two sites would pitch in a couple of dollars, we’d have this AND next year covered. So I guess it comes down to whether you value the service enough to support it financially.
If you find either woodcreeper.com or badbirdz-reloaded to be a useful service to you, then consider pitching in a buck or two to keep the archives archived, and the radar flowing.
I hate to ask for money, but it’s either all out of my pocket (which is pretty empty right now) or spread across all of our collective pockets (which means very little from each of us). As always, I am grateful.
Thanks for your consideration.
