Bird-a-thon 2015

Help Us Reach Our Goal!


Bird-a-thon is our annual fundraiser where teams of birders spend 24 hours trying to spot the most species in Massachusetts.

Since the event began 1983, thousands of dedicated supporters and team members have raised more than $2 million to support Mass Audubon’s wildlife sanctuaries and programs across the state.

Bird-a-thon 2015 is over and we have raised nearly $220,000. Please join us next year for Bird-a-thon 2016!

And the top winners for 2015 are...

This year’s top prizes for the number of species recorded are:

  • Brewster Cup  (1st place most species seen)  Drumlin Farm , 221 species
  • The Forbush Award  (2nd place most species seen)  Moose Hill  220 species

This is the closest finish since we had a tie in 2007 between Drumlin Farm and Ipswich River with 233 each.

Congratulations to both teams for a great effort! Referring to the records we have here at Bird-a-thon headquarters, this is at least eleven years in a row for Drumlin Farm – what a team! And this is the first year that Moose Hill has come in second. Amazing.

If you haven’t had a chance to make a gift, there is still plenty of time to support Bird-a-ton by making a donation to your favorite sanctuary or program. 

We are so grateful to all of you who participated. Whether you were a team leader, team member, fundraiser, or supporter, we appreciate all you did to make our Bird-a-thon so successful! 

We hope you will join us again next year for Bird-a-thon 2016 on May 13–14! See you then.
