The 31st annual Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory – St. Louis County Birdathon is taking place on Saturday, May 20th.

2016 Birdathon Big Day champs. The team to beat in 2017.

Birders of all levels of ability are invited to participate in this fun citizen-science event individually or with a team. You can compete in the Big Day by counting as many species as you can find within the 24-hour time period. Or, you can compete in other categories, such as a Big Sit or the non-motorized division. Prizes will be awarded for each category.

Even if you can’t participate, we hope you join us as a supporter of the event. This Birdathon helps bring in needed dollars for the Hawk Ridge bird conservation research and education programs. You can make a general donation by clicking on the “DONATE” button below or by pledging directly to a participating team.

Everyone is also welcome to join us at the Birdathon Compilation Potluck Brunch on Sunday, May 21 at 9:30 am at the UMD Bagley Outdoor Classroom (703 Oakland Circle, Duluth, MN 55812).
