Bring your binoculars and come with us! Birds are our common interest, and people at all levels of expertise join our field trips to the best local and regional birding spots. If you’re a beginner, we’ll help you find and identify birds; if you’re an experienced birdwatcher, you can lead us to a favorite place.
