Join Global Big Day 4 May!

If you like to get out in the spring sunshine and count birds, you should sign up to participate in the annual Global Big Day (GBD) in Arizona on Saturday 4 May. 

The GBD, sponsored by eBird, is coordinated in Arizona by Arizona Field Ornithologists and supported by local Audubon societies, local bird clubs, and other interested organizations. With hundreds of volunteers in the field we will strive to get a "snapshot" of the spring migration, and most of all have fun! You can be flexible about the time you spend in the field or you can just count birds in your yard. Our highest state total has been 312 species.

The count is organized by county, and we currently have county coordinators for 13 of the state's 15 counties. If you want to volunteer, check out the list of county coordinators. (Note: This list isn't updated yet for Navajo County where Nick Worth is coordinator and Mohave County where Kerrie Anne Loyd is coordinator.)

If you are in Greenlee or Santa Cruz county, which don't have coordinators yet, we encourage you to volunteer to coordinate our efforts there. 

In addition to attempting to find the most number of species and number of birds we can in each county, we hope to get individuals or teams to places not regularly birded to increase our knowledge of migration distribution in the state.

We look forward to seeing you in the field.

Doug Jenness,
2019 State Coordinator for the Arizona Global Big Day Count
