This year will be bigger and better than ever and the birds benefit as much as the humans who get to watch them! Want to help save the Golden-winged Warbler? Right at registration, thanks to the American Bird Conservancy and the Black Swamp Bird Observatory, you can donate ten dollars (completely optional!) to help support the creation of a wintering habitat corridor in Nicaragua. This project will also help other overwintering migrants near El Jaguar, Nicaragua (such as the Wood Thrush).
Now Who wants to see a Prothonotary Warbler this May?
Returning for the second year is a unique even to the Biggest Week: the 2nd Annual Bird Tattoo Contest.
Last Year’s Winner!
Please check out the Registration Page and make some early May vacation plans. You will NOT be disappointed! There is not a better place to see migratory songbirds or a better place to meet awesome birders just like us! New birders are treated so well and experts are loved and appreciated. If you are a Black Swamp Bird Observatory member: the general registration is only $20. Nonmembers are only $35 and students over 13 only $10! Bring all your little ones under 13 for free. Workshops and field trips have separate costs but are optional and there is a complete list of all activities on the Registration Page.
Birders are Great People!
We really hope to see everyone there this May!
