Chagrin River Bird Quest

Annual Team Birding Challenge

in support of the Chagrin River Corridor IBA


2016 Bird Quest winners!

Get your team together and explore the Chagrin River Valley from Lake Erie south to Audubon’s bird sanctuaries in Aurora in search of fall residents and migrants. Start in your own backyard, bird on your own (list of places to bird), or join naturalists for a guided bird walk (more info below).  How many species can your team check off in 24 hours?



I’ll be out at night.

Share the day with family, friends, co-workers, and classmates! Teams can be two or more, young or old, experienced birders, or never birded before! One team member must be 18 or older with a valid driver’s license. Win a prize for the most unusual team name!
