What is Birdathon?

Birdathon is a team-birding fundraiser that started back in 1981 and continues to grow each year.  Teams are typically made of 4 participants. Teams compete to count as many bird species as possible in a 24-hour period and raise money much like any marathon. Birdathon includes an awards celebration at the end of the competition.

Everyone is welcome to participate! If you are new to birding, please join the fun. We have veterans and experts that will help you along the way and can even join your team. Birdathon is a great way to enjoy spring migration and support Houston Audubon at the same time.
