What is the World Series of Birding?

It’s a game, it’s a marathon, it’s a challenge, it’s a heck of a lot of fun!

Many great birders have raised glasses in this event. The first official World Series of Birding began at midnight on May 19, 1984, when just thirteen teams set out on a 24-hour treasure hunt. Their mission was to tally as many species of birds by sight or sound as possible. Their objective was to raise money for their favorite environmental cause, and to focus worldwide attention upon the habitat needs of migrating birds.

They succeeded beyond anyone’s dreams. Today there are thousands of participants, including donors and support team members, in the event and the event has grown into several categories and ways to play.

Bird Conservation Challenge- Level I – for adult teams ages 19 and up who compete for awards in several categories
NJ Audubon Ambassador Challenge – Level II – for non-competing teams wishing to just have fun and raise funds for NJ Audubon
Zeiss Youth Challenge – Level III – for ages 6-18 within their respective school grades.
