It’s December! That means time for our annual Members’ Meeting, where members share a few of their own bird slides. Even more exciting, it’s almost Christmas Bird Count time! You can join in our club’s own Northampton CBC; if you have time, participate in other CBCs around the state; and, if you are travelling out-of-state for the holidays, you can look for CBCs in other states around the country!

It’s also time to set up the club’s field trip schedule for the spring and summer; if you have any ideas, or better yet want to volunteer to lead a trip or two, please contact our field trip chair, Mike Locher, and let him know!

Join the Club

We are a membership-supported organization.

Although programs and many field trips are open to the public, some trips are open for Hampshire Bird Club, Inc. members only. Join today to take advantage of all offerings of the HBC!
