Biggest Week in American Birding: Hoo’s In?

It’s finally time!
Registration is now open for the Biggest Week in American Birding May 6th through May 15th, 2014!


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!
