Birdathon 2024

Have fun and raise money to protect Oregon’s birds!

Teams go out April 27 – June 2

Birdathon is the uniquely Bird Alliance of Oregon way to help protect Oregon’s native birds. Now in its 44th year, Birdathon is one of our most beloved traditions, bringing people together to raise funds to protect birds while watching birds. Everyone is welcome – expert birders, casual birdwatchers and beginners! Like a walk-a-thon, Birdathon participants (Birdathoners) collect pledges and donations from friends, family members, and coworkers for finding and counting bird species. This year we hope to raise over $188,000 to support Bird Alliance of Oregon’s work across Oregon.
