Who knew that birding was a competitive sport? Well, if you've seen The Big Year, perhaps it's no surprise that easygoing naturalists can sometimes go crazy! Here's your chance to experience the thrills, despairs, and total sensory overload: an entire day of all-out birding! Join a Harriers team and see how many species you can identify in 24 hours, while competing against other teams around the state of New Hampshire. The real fun, however, is simply in spending a day trying to see and hear as much as you can, whether on foot, by bicycle, or by driving from place to place in a car. Team captains will be involved in planning their respective routes; one adult will also be assigned to each team to help with driving and other logistics. All are welcome, at any level of participation! Contact us to learn more about joining a Harriers team, or visit the NH Audubon website to learn more about the Birdathon itself. All pledges raised for the Birdathon will go to support New Hampshire Audubon.
