The Colorado Birding Challenge is a fun, county-based birding and conservation event held during the most exciting time of the birding year. The Challenge provides funds to support bird conservation projects each year.

The objectives of the Challenges are:

  • To engage hundreds of birders in a fun day of finding and learning about Colorado’s birds.
  • To raise funds for a critical conservation project each year. Each year’s beneficiary is announced in January each year. 
  • To generate eBird data for all 64 counties on the same day.
  • To provide support for the expanding programs and work of Colorado Field Ornithologists.
