Announcing the 2024 Brooklyn Bird Club Birdathon

We’re happy to announce the 2024 Brooklyn Bird Club Birdathon, to be held in celebration of World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) on Saturday, May 11.

The annual Birdathon asks birders to form teams of up to 6 members and count bird species in Brooklyn in support of a cause that helps the birds we love. 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.

This year’s designated beneficiary is the The Foundation for the Conservation of the Tropical Andes (FCAT – https://fcat-ecuador.orgFor more information, and to donate:

Please register your team by sending team members, your day’s goal, and a team name to Bobbi Manian by Tuesday, May 7.
