Birds on the Niagara

Birds on Niagara is in our 3rd year as an International Bird Festival celebrating both the winter birds on the Niagara River Strait, and providing year round educational activities with partners on both sides of the border.  Our goals are to both raise the awarness of birds, and to help to introduce citizen science to very critical conservation needs. This spring during the Corvid-19 pandemic we are hosting a series of vitural events to help keep people connected.

New Hampshire Audubon's Local Birdathon Challenge

Birdathon 2020 is a celebration of LOCAL birding, whether it occurs in your yard, your town, or within walking range. Instead of teams competing against each other for high species totals and bragging rights, we’re all in this one together – the more people we have the better we’ll do, and perhaps set a bar we can try to overcome in a future year. The goal is simple: Let’s see how many species we can COLLECTIVELY find within New Hampshire on May 9.
