Which tournament category is for you?

The Fall 2020 Birding Classic will offer up your old tournament favorites with some slight modifications due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Please check back in early August for final categories, updated rules, and tournament modifications to help with responsible recreation during this special fall edition of the Birding Classic.

General Guidelines for All Tournaments:greatblueheron

  • With the month-long format (October 1-31, 2020), participants may participate in more than one category and/or in the same category for multiple regions.
  • Mixed age teams will compete in the age category where 50 percent or more of the competitors fall (e.g., two 25 year-olds and one 17 year-old fall in the Adult category, but two 18 year-olds and one 21 year-old are Gliders). In the event that the team is 50/50, the team automatically falls in the older age group. Roughwings teams are excluded from this rule; all Roughwings team members must be ages 13 years old and under.
  • Additional guidelines will be added by August 10, 2020, for the modified Fall Birding Classic.
