How many species can you count? The BirdLife WA Twitchathon returns in 2018 with all entries also eligible for the National competition, now in its third year. The national twitchathon uses a weighting system to rank all state entries and determine an overall winner! All members and supporters of BirdLife are invited to take part.
We have three events to suit any type of team:
• 24 hour competition (State and National prizes)
• 12 hour competition (State and National prizes)
• Birdathon competition (National prize)
The Birdathon competition is designed to encourage newer birders and involves birding in three 1-hour blocks, aiming to get the highest total in Australia. There are loads of exciting prizes to be won for the highest totals, rarest sightings, best fundraisers and many more! There are also prizes for young birders.
Teams of 2 to 5 people can twitch wherever they like within WA. Any mode of travel (except by air) is allowed. Call playback is not allowed. Teams may enter one competition category.
For entry forms and further information please contact me.
