The BirdSO Invitational is a Division B and Division C invitational which was held under Bay Area Science Olympiad in Northern California in its first year. In 2022, the competition was registered under Southern California and hosted two competitions: a miniSO competition in December and a Satellite competition in February and March. The 2023 season marked the tournament's first in-person incarnation, with a Division B tournament being hosted at Rio Hondo College on January 14th, 2023 and a Division C tournament being hosted at Temple City High School on January 28th. A satellite tournament was also held in 2023, being held online from February 11th to February 18th. 2024 followed the same tournament format as 2023, with one in-person tournament and one satellite tournament taking place. However, both divisions for the in-person tournament were hosted at the University of Southern California on January 13, 2024. A satellite tournament was hosted from February 10th, 2024 to February 17th, 2024.

Additionally, all profits from the competition in the 2022 season funded the 2022 National Tournament. That season also saw the introduction of the Computer Science Initiative for the Satellite tournament, with each division featuring five trial events focused on concepts in computer science.
