Support San Diego Audubon's 2017 Birdathon!

BirdathonLOGO2017BIRDSrgbBirdathon is a friendly bird-watching competition held by San Diego Audubon each year during the month of April to raise important funds to support our Conservation, Education, and Sanctuary programs. Teams of birders identify as many bird species as possible in a 24 hour period within San Diego County. Each team decides its own strategy - where to go to see different bird species, what time of day to visit and how long to stay each location, and how many locations to squeeze into the day! Birdathon teams compete not only to record the most species but to raise the most funds for San Diego Audubon. 

Current Birdathon teams include the: 
  • Silent Siskins
  • Wandering Totalers
  • Too Tired Birders
  • U-Terns
  • White-Crested Nutbatch
**NOTE: To sponsor a specific team, type the team name into the Additional Comments box
