Big Day (Bird Count)

Back to calendar | Categories: Community
Location: Wichita Falls

Teams of three to six people count as many different bird species as possible within a 24 hour period in and around Wichita Falls.  Each team solicits pledges that will be donated to Wild Bird Rescue.  Big Day will happen during the Fall migration providing an opportunity to see many bird species that only migrate through North Texas. 

School groups, families, scout troops and others are encouraged to form teams. Beginners are welcome and can be paired with experienced birders to ensure they will have a successful day.  This year's event will culminate with a gala supper and awards presentation that evening. Board members will also gather goody bags and door prizes for participants. 

To register your team, fill out the attached form below and email it to or drop it off at Wild Bird Rescue (4611 Lakeshore Drive). 

Team members should contact friends, family, co-workers, etc to collect pledges.  All pledge money will go directly to Wild Bird Rescue, Inc.
