Whether you’re inspired by a love of birds, concern 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!
The Audubon Birdathon takes place over a 24-hour period, during which you’ll go outside or bird from your window and count as many different bird species as you can. Go birding for the entire 24 hours, 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. Bird as a group along the Chesapeake Bay, at Patterson Park, John James Audubon, The Discovery Center, anywhere in Maryland or Pennsylvania!
Any way you do it, every dollar you raise supports Audubon Maryland-DC and Audubon Pennsylvania's work to protect birds and the places they need. Keep an eye out for some of our favorite local species: Chimney Swift, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Great Horned Owl, and, of course, Baltimore Oriole!
