Are you looking for a way to take your support for conservation to the next level? With Birdathon 2024 just around the corner, we’re inviting passionate individuals like you to join us in protecting Canada’s birds.

To get involved, simply go to and sign up today. Create your team or personal profile, then pick any day in May to go birding. Once registered, start reaching out to your network and ask for sponsors to support your birding adventure. It’s your chance to raise essential funds and awareness while enjoying the beauty of birds with your friends and family.

And in case you missed it, the Olive-sided Flycatcher has been chosen as the very first Birds Canada Avian Ambassador for 2024! Olive-sided Flycatchers breed in Boreal wilderness filled with coniferous forest and travel perilous long-distance migrations to lush tropical worlds. They’re also aerial insectivores, the fastest declining group of birds in Canada. They are a perfect bird to symbolize your viral role in bird conservation and will be featured on the Birdathon t-shirt, designed by Stephanie Simpson. Plus, this year, you can choose the colour of your shirt!
