Denver Audubon’s Big Year
As part of Denver Audubon’s 50 Year Anniversary, we are sponsoring a local 6 county Big Birding Year! Join the fun, win prizes, and explore the great birding sites around us. Plan to attend a viewing of the movie “The Big Year” and talk to the author Mark Obmascik!! More information and updates will be posted throughout 2019.
- Our Big Year starts 12:00 AM on 01/01/2019 and ends 11:59 PM on 12/31/2019.
- Identify bird species in any/all of 6 Colorado counties– Jefferson, Denver, Adams, Broomfield, Arapahoe, and Douglas. There will be 1 winner per county.
- Register for this event with Denver Audubon ( denveraudubon.org )
- Cost $10.00
- Stay tuned for eBird classes and tutorials.
- Sign up for Denver Audubon field trips to hone your birding skills!
- Record your sightings using eBird from your app or on your home computer.
- Create account at ebird.org if you don’t already have one.
- We will be using eBird’sTop 100 ( ebird.org/top100 ) to track monthly progress so do NOT hide your data nor setup as “Anonymous eBirder”.
- Each recorded species must be on American Birding Association (ABA) Checklist. At the end of the year front-runners will be asked to download their eBird yearly report and send to Denver Audubon so that we can verify winners.
