The Birmingham Zoo and Alabama Audubon are teaming up for our annual Great Backyard Bird Count! We’re continuing our tradition that unites birdwatchers from across the area as they track bird species found in our own backyards, parks and local spaces. Seasonal bird counts have been a central part of Alabama Audubon’s work ever since its founding in 1946. If you’re new to birding, returning after an absence, or just interested in checking out the wintering and resident birds, we invite you to join us!
Hear bird watching tips from Alabama Audubon experts. Bird lovers of all ages are invited to bring their binoculars, bird field guides, and cameras for an experience like no other!
8:00am – 10:00am
Join us at 8:00am at the Children’s Zoo’s front entrance.
If you have your own binoculars, you’ll definitely want to bring them along.
Accessibility: Parts of this walk are wheelchair accessible, while other parts are on a gravel path
The birds: We anticipate seeing many species of wintering and resident songbirds, woodpeckers, and sparrows. You’ll find the latest eBird records for the zoo at https://ebird.org/hotspot/L1012850
