Why Attend the Awards?caption:2013 Winners Certificates

  • Meet teams from your area.
  • Have a chance to introduce your teammates and thank any team sponsors.
  • Take part in an annual favorite: Sharing your team's highlights (or lowlights!) - funny stories, life birds, near misses on your list, the one that got away - share it all!
  • Enjoy snacks and beverages while chatting with like-minded fellow competitors.

Join Texas Parks and Wildlife and Audubon Texas to celebrate your team’s participation in the biggest, longest, and wildest birdwatching tournament in the US!

The Awards Ceremony is a favorite with past participants as it gives everyone a chance to share their stories from the field and meet the winners. This year we will have two events to make distance easier for the majority of teams.
