Youth Birding Competition

The Youth Birding Competition is a 24-hour birding event during the peak of spring migration. Youth teams spend the day finding as many species as they can as they compete against teams their own age. The competition is capped off with a wildlife show and awards banquet.

Update: Because of safety precautions involving the novel coronavirus, the 2020 competition—initially postponed from April to August—has been canceled. The 2021 event is tentatively set for April 23–24.
