The first ever Big Day Boston downtown birding competition will be held May 6th at Copp's Hill Terrace.
Described as the anti-competition birding competition, Big Day Boston aims to bring awareness of the abundance and diversity of birds in Boston's downtown.
I was inspired to organize Big Day Boston after finding 27 different species of birds in just the North End and Public Garden in the spring of 2022. The quantification gave me a way to share the experience with others that resonated with them - especially non-birders: ("Wow! There are 27 different species of birds in downtown?")
Kickoff and awards for the the 2023 event will be held May 6th, 2023 at Copp's Hill Terrace.
You must register for the event at the Big Day Boston website. I hope to see many North End neighbors there!
