Audubon Vermont Birdathon

Making Birding Count


It's official! We counted 87 species on our staff Birdathon! 
Thanks to everyone for your support. And, nope, it's not too late to donate: 
Here's the full list of 87, in order of appearance:


Birdathon is one of Audubon Vermont’s biggest fundraisers of the year. We begin our journey bright and early to travel through forests, fields & along rivers and ponds to see, hear, and identify as many of our feathered friends as possible within a 24-hour period.

We keep a record of the number and variety of species that we find, which we'll publish here afterwards!  Through generous sponsorships from friends, family & Audubon supporters, we raise essential funds to maintain Audubon Vermont's education programs, science initiatives and Green Mountain Audubon Center facilities.

Click HERE to make an online donation now, or mail a check to Audubon Vermont.

As a sponsor, 100% of your tax-deductible contribution will support programs here in Vermont:

  • Providing thousands of young people with engaging opportunities to connect with nature, scholarships to attend summer camp, and school programs throughout the year.
  • Helping landowners across Vermont manage habitat for our native bird species, many of which are declining dramatically and need our help.  We’ve worked with owners of over 180,000 acres already so that the songs we hear each spring can continue into the future.
