 Any day in June

Last June, birders found 5,478 birds of 108 species in the hilly woods and prairies of the Palos and Sag Valley Preserves ...  but we think there are more! This June, we're going to beat that number. If you blitzed with us last year but want to spend more time in your section, please do! Maybe you feel you just scratched the surface. And if you didn't blitz with us last year but have spent the whole year regretting it - this is your big chance.   Experienced birders can volunteer to cover a section that was not blitzed last year. We’re hoping you’ll join us!

We ask that you choose one day in June to try to cover your area as thoroughly as you can.  Start as early as you like and stay as long as you like, but keep to one day and try your best not to double-count birds. As we did last year, we will send you instructions and results will be entered into a special email account.

Register for the Blitz!
