New this year, we've added a Recreational Team category for those that want to count birds without the competition. View the chart below to see which team is right for you!
This is the traditional 24-hour Birdathon team that competes for most bird species, fundraising and prizes!
Our newest team category gives you a whole month to count birds! You can bird solo or have as many fellow birders on your team as you like.
