Mission - to promote interest in the study and preservation of birds and their habitats

May - DFO Big Month

How many species can be recorded on DFO field trips in the month of May? With the early nesting season overlapping the peak of spring migration, May is one the favorite months for birders. Our aim is simple: generate the biggest one-month species list we can on DFO field trips, while having more fun than we’re entitled to. Register for any of the 23 trips scheduled in the nine "local" counties of the metro area and watch the list grow on a new Big Month report.

Field Trips

DFO's signature activity - birding in the metro and beyond. Trips are scheduled for most weekends as well as some on weekdays. DFO has leader standards and training to help assure that you have the best possible experience on one of our trips. Register for one today.
