Thank you so much to all the participants and donors who have so far supported the Great Canadian Birdathon® in 2021. The annual Birdathon unites Canada’s bird lovers in raising essential funds for bird conservation – and 2021 was no exception! Every donation will make a difference for birds that spend part of their year in Canada or live here year-round.

As in 2020, dedicated participants from coast to coast found safe ways to go birding and ask family and friends for support – and enjoy themselves, too! Here are a few of the amazing birds they’ve shared with us:

​You can check out more of the beautiful birds, lovely landscapes, and inspiring Birdathon teams in our “Great Canadian Birdathon 2021” Facebook photo album (no Facebook account required).

There is still time to support bird conservation in 2021 with a Birdathon donation. Please visit and use the search tool to find a participating team or individual and donate on their page.

Those who participated this year are eligible for the prize draw. Make sure to get your donations in by 31 December 2021 for your chance to win top-notch prizes from our 2021 Birdathon prize donors: Eagle-Eye Tours, Vortex Canada, Kowa, and Armstrong Bird Food. Winners will be announced in January 2022.

If you enjoy birding of any style – super casual, super ambitious, or somewhere in between – we hope you’ll join the Birdathon community in 2022. It’s a fun way to celebrate birds and give back to them by supporting important research and conservation work. We don’t yet know what to expect in 2022 but will be keeping health and safety our top priority. Watch Birds Canada’s enews and social media accounts in early spring to find out how you can take part in the Great Canadian Birdathon in 2022.
