Baillie Birdathon

Want to have a lot of fun and help birds and nature at the same time? Do a Birdathon this May! It's challenging, exhilarating, and - beware - addictive! Birdathoners just can't help coming back for more, year after year!

More than 7,000 people from across Canada (and from several countries around the world) participate in and/or sponsor Birdathon in May of every year. During a 24-hour period in May, they attempt to find as many bird species as they can, sponsored at a flat rate, or on a per-species basis. Birders can designate a favourite conservation organization to receive a portion of the funds they raise. Bird observatories can also be designated as recipients of fund raising.

As a further incentive, our sponsors have provided some wonderful prizes for participants to win. Click here for the full list.
