Birdathon is a friendly birding competition held during the month of April to raise vital funds for the San Diego Audubon Society. Teams of volunteers spend time outdoors with the goal of identifying as many bird species as possible during a single 24 hour period. Each team decides its own strategy: when and where to go within San Diego County, and how long to visit each location. Team members compete to record the most species and raise the most money. If you share our desire to protect San Diego County's habitats and support our efforts to safeguard San Diego County as a beautiful place for both people and wildlife, we ask you to support our work today by contributing to our Birdathon campaign.
