Now is the time to gather your team and register for the 26th Annual Birding Classic. The event will continue with some of the pandemic-friendly categories developed over the past two years and will also offer some participant favorites that haven't been offered since 2019.
So, gather your friends, family, fellow bird or nature club members and colleagues to join your team for the 2022 Birding Classic.
Registration deadline: April 1
Tournament Dates: April 15-May 15 (your choice of day)
Novice birders, expert listers and everyone in between are welcome! There are many categories to choose from based on your birding ability and region of the state. There are half day, full day and weeklong tournaments and categories for a "dispersed flock" or an "intact flock" to allow you to bird solo or in a group.
Participants receive T-shirts with the official 2022 artwork of “Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks,” by Stephanie Galla. Stay tuned for a vote on shirt color coming soon.
Registration fees and sponsorship dollars go toward conservation grants for birding, nature tourism and habitat restoration and enhancement projects throughout Texas. Select winning teams will help choose which projects are funded. The more teams that register, the more funds available to award.
