All the entrie s are in - now it’s time for you to vote to help Carl and Caroline find their forever home!
As these lovebirds travel across North Carolina spreading the word about Audubon NC’s Cardinal Club monthly giving program, Carl and Caroline need your help nest-hunting. They’re looking for the perfect city to settle down in and raise their babies. Do you think it’s your hometown?
To vote for a city, all you have to do is look through the invitations that were sent in on our Facebook page and ‘like’ a post. Keep in mind that all the invitations for the same city will be tallied together. The city with the most votes will receive plush Carl and Caroline cardinals, bragging rights and the title of being home to Carl and Caroline- the coolest birds around.
While you’re busy helping them nest-hunt, Carl and Caroline will be traveling from the NC coast to the Piedmont and, lastly, to the mountains. You may even spot them during this December’s Christmas bird count, if you’re volunteering! They will be visiting their beaked-buddies in Important Bird Areas, hanging out with avian scientists and spreading the word about the Cardinal Club.
He’s excited to travel around the state, but also to ask people to join him in protecting NC’s birds.
Donations from the Cardinal Club help fund programs like Brown-Headed Nuthatch nest boxes, Audubon NC’s Donal C. O’Brien Jr. Sanctuary on the Outer Banks and bird-friendly communities. These endeavors keep Carl’s state safe and comfy for him, Caroline and their future chicks.
