Hampshire Bird Club Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping people enjoy birding and to help them learn about birds and bird habitats.

We offer monthly meetings including programs by renowned speakers, field trips for birders at any skill level, educational outreach, strong ties to the Christmas Bird Count, a lending library, a monthly newsletter, a Rare Bird Alert, and even the HBC Boutique for the fashion-conscious birder in all of us. . . .

We hope you will learn more about us using this Website, and we hope to see you at an HBC event soon.
