Count birds to raise funds for bird protection
What is a Birdathon? It's a Walk-a-thon with birds! Birdathon participants collect pledges for finding and counting bird species during a 24-hour period of their choice. Donations go to the Bird Protection Fund to safeguard Wisconsin’s precious birds. It’s a competitive, fun, and educational event for any level of birdwatcher, from the back-yard birder to the pro.
