Birdathon is Houston Audubon’s community fundraiser where teams of all skill levels are encouraged to get out in nature and count birds while raising funds for Houston Audubon’s work in the protection of birds through habitat restoration, surveying and monitoring, nature education, supporting bird-friendly communities, and advocacy efforts.
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!
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.
This is the traditional 24-hour Birdathon team that competes for most bird species, fundraising and prizes!
for the classroom
No fundraising required; this is an opportunity for your students to discover a new passion and learn more about environmental stewardship.
