The Semi-Superbowl of Birding 2022, like the pre-pandemic Superbowl of Birding I-XVII, is a unique competition conducted in Rockingham County, NH, and Essex County, MA. During a 12-hour period, teams of birders of all ages and abilities seek out the greatest number of avian species and amass the most points based on the rarity of the birds recorded. Teams compete this year for prizes in 11 categories. Enjoy spectacular winter birding and find out just how good you and your team really are!
A team for the Semi-Superbowl is defined as four to seven people. All Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Mass Audubon safety precautions in effect at the start of the contest must be followed. Winners of this year's competition will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony for all participants on the evening following the contest. Winners will also be announced on Massbird, NHBird, and the Mass Audubon Superbowl website.
