6th Annual Birding Big Day Blitz

Saturday, June 8, 2019 - 5:30am

The 6th Annual Birding Big Day Blitz  is Idaho competitive birding at its best.  Teams of 2-4 birders compete against each other for the coveted "Best Birders" Award. The friendly competition spurs on birders to look long and hard for every species possible, resulting in new park records and greater scientific understanding about breeding and migration through the southern Albion Mountains. In previous years, birders have found over 121 species in a 24-hour period.

This year the competition is being held in conjunction with the Basin and Range Weekend Seminar sponsored by the Great Salt Lake Audubon Society, which will result in teams from Utah competing with Idaho teams. This could become a new rivalry.
