Migratory Bird Fest and Birdathon

March 12 - 31, 2021

We are excited to bring back Migratory Bird Fest and Birdathon 2021, after a short break due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year we celebrate Migratory Birds while social distancing – through a Birdathon and virtual events. Migratory Bird Fest is a community festival usually held at Mitchell Lake Audubon Center in May to celebrate spring migration. Mitchell Lake Audubon Center cancelled the festival in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Virtual Migratory Bird Fest is our way of holding the festival for the community in a socially distant and safe way.

Birdathon 2021 will help raise funds lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those who participate as a Birder or Flock in Birdathon will receive a free pass to all the virtual workshops and programs associated with Migratory Bird Fest, as well as a swag bag and special access to Mitchell Lake Audubon Center for socially distant birding.

This three-week event will consist of virtual workshops, guest lectures, virtual bird tours, contests, and birding competition. Check back for more details!

Registration for Birdathon 2021 is OPEN! Register to become a Participating Birder by clicking HERE.
