Whether you're inspired by a love of birds, concerned for the environment, or the sheer pleasure of being outdoors, the Audubon Birdathon is a great opportunity to do something positive for the planet- and have fun doing it!
Migration is the perfect time to remind ourselves of the wonder of Florida's native bird community. From the year-round residents, to the migratory stop-overs, to the summer breeders, the Sunshine State is home to more than 500 bird species! How many can you spot in one day?
The Audubon Birdathon takes place over a week-long period, during which you head outside and count as many different bird species as you can. Pick 24-hour period over the course of the week to go birding, do a single morning or afternoon session, or head outside for an hour here or there. You can either build a birding team online—gather teammates from anywhere around the country—or bird on your own.
Any way you do it, every dollar you raise supports Audubon's work in Florida to protect birds from the Florida Keys, across the hills of North Florida, to the Center for Birds of Prey and the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Beloved species like the Roseate Spoonbill and Wood Stork depend on our healthy coasts, wetlands, and woodlands to survive. Our work helps make these important places more resilient for birds and people. You're doing a great thing by joining the Audubon Birdathon. Thank you!
