Young Birder BIG Weekend

Friday, April 28 – Sunday, April 30, 2023


If you are a young person interested in birds, you are invited to take part in a weekend of birdwatching for young birders like you! Wherever you are from April 28th to the 30th, take some time to watch birds! Whether challenging yourself to count birds every day or just taking a few minutes in your backyard, every bird counts. Let’s see how many species we can find together!

If participating, email the following info after the big weekend to by May 10th:

  • An eBird checklist(s) from your birding
  • A list of the species you saw
  • How many of each you counted
  • Where you birded
  • Numbers of young birders present

Photo submissions of a bird seen, or you out birding, are also welcome! Compilation will be posted here and in The Fledgling magazine.
