Everyone is welcome ─ hardcore birders, backyard feeder watchers, and beginners! Like a walkathon, participants collect pledges and donations from friends and family for finding and counting bird species on the day of the Birdathon. Instead of getting a pledge per mile walked, Birdathon participants ask for a pledge for each bird species seen by the team.
Registration: Please register your team by sending team members, your day’s goal, and a team name to Bobbi Manian birdathon@brooklynbirdclub.org by Tuesday, May 10
