BIRDATHON 2019 – April 7–May 7

For over 30 years southeast Arizona has come together to support Tucson Audubon’s Birdathon—a community fundraising tradition since 1987!

Birdathon is like a walkathon, only instead of counting laps, we go birding and count birds! It’s an opportunity to enjoy southeast Arizona’s birds while raising or donating critical funds to the Tucson Audubon Society.

As a participant, first decide if you will join one of our Expert-led trips or create your own team. Then gather per species pledges or direct donations and go birding! You can hold a “traditional” Birdathon and count as many species as possible during a 24 hour timeframe any day from April 7 to May 7, or you can organize your Birdathon more creatively. It’s up to you! There are prizes for a number of categories, and they will be awarded at the wrap-up party in May.

Birding Southeast Arizona App: Now for Android and iOS

A great interactive companion to our Finding Birds in Southeast Arizona, the new Birding Southeast Arizona app is now available for Apple iOS ($9.99) and Android ($7.99) devices. A collaboration between Tucson Audubon and the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory, with funding from the Southeastern Arizona Birding Trail committee, the app covers over 130 birding sites in six subregions in and around Tucson, all vetted by local experts.

The app takes bird-finding in southeast Arizona to the next level:

  • Use GPS to find birding “sites near me”
  • View details and a list of common species for each site
  • Get turn-by-turn directions and find nearby amenities
  • Search all sites for a “target bird,” and find the nearest location
  • Access Audubon’s online bird guide for quick reference in the field
  • Plan your next trip by searching for sites near a city or ZIP code
  • Tag your favorite spots and share with your friends
  • Track and log your sightings and share custom sighting maps with your friends via Facebook

Proceeds benefit the education, research, and conservation programs of the Tucson Audubon Society and the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory.
