Brooklyn Bird Club Birding Scavenger Hunt – World Migratory Bird Day, Oct 14, 2023

October 14, 2023

Celebrate World Migratory Bird Day with a slightly-competitive but just-for-fun event- the first-ever Brooklyn Birding Scavenger Hunt!

Participating is easy. Form a team of 6 or fewer birders (or do it solo) and bird any way you’d like – in your favorite park, all over Brooklyn, or through your window.

You’ll receive a list of birding goals with varying point values to complete during the day. The team who totals the most points will be crowned the champs and win fantastic bird apparel from the Brooklyn Bird Club and Bird Collective.

Examples of birding goals, which could cover bird identification, bird behavior, or “seen while birding” activity:

  • See a red-colored bird (2 points per species)
  • Watch birds mob a predator (5 points per observation)
  • See a “life bird” (for anyone on your team, 20 points, max 60 points)

We’ll have a compilation event at a to be determined bar or park location in the late afternoon.

Please email scavengerhunt@brooklynbirdclub.org to register yourself or your team by Wednesday, October 11. You’ll receive the list of goals on Thursday, October 12, 2023. Happy hunting!
