Who’s got the best birds — San Francisco or East Bay?
What: The Bay Birding Challenge is a friendly birding event where teams (this year SF and East Bay) compete against each other to see who can raise the most money through supported donations as well as which team can observe the most individual species.

The end date for raising funds to support both teams is April 30 at 11pm. The tally for the total number of birds seen during the Bay Birding Challenge will be revealed on April 12.

Bay Birding Challenge Results
After a long back and forth birding battle between our two Bay Birding Challenge teams over the weekend, San Francisco Count team won in the category of most bird species seen over the course of the day on Saturday, April 9 with 146 individual species recorded. It was a close competition as the East Bay Count team ended their day with 141 individual species seen.
