NJ Audubon’s World Series of Birding®

For the 38th year in a row, starting at 12:01 midnight on Saturday, May 8th, 2021 from midnight to midnight and all kinds of hours in between, birders will be birding, looking and listening for as many bird species as possible. This year, they will be participating throughout the Atlantic Flyway and more.

The World Series of Birding is the country’s largest and most prestigious birding competition and provides participants and sponsors with a fun and interactive way to raise money for critically needed conservation priorities.

The 2021 World Series of Birding “Special Edition II” is designed for a day of good birding, lots of communication and sharing, virtual camaraderie and FUN, all with the health and safety of everyone involved paramount during the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing. Whether you look out the window, explore your yard or neighborhood, or venture to a nearby park (only if open), set the day aside for the enjoyment of birds and raising critical funding for New Jersey Audubon or the conservation cause of your choice.
