What is Birdathon?

Birdathon is the birder's equivalent to a walkathon, but better (because you get to look at birds all day). Teams of 2 or more (typically 4-5) compete to count as many bird species as possible in a consecutive 24-hour period. Birdathon is primarily a fundraiser, so teams also compete to raise the most money for the best cause: bird conservation. The birding and fundraising period is followed by a fun awards celebration with prizes for the most birds identified, most funds raised, best story, best team name and more! Birdathon is a great way to enjoy spring migration and support Houston Audubon at the same time. 

Whether you can identify 2 species or 2,000, birders of all experience levels are welcome to participate in Birdathon! Please contact us if you'd like to be placed on a team.
