Manomet Bird-a-Thon 2017



Every year during the fall migration, bird lovers and aspiring birders participate in the Manomet Bird-a-Thon. Birders participate, individually or on a team, by counting the number of different species of birds they identify in a 48 hour period and by asking family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to sponsor them.  





Everyone is welcome!
Beginner birders, experts and first timers can all get in on the fun. We can’t do it without you.Anyone who raises $100 or more will receive an official Bird-a-Thon t-shirt, with even more exclusive items available for those who raise more!  If you are not able to bird, but still wish to contribute, you can you can still support our Landbird Conservation program by making a contribution.
