Welcome back!

Thanksgiving is over, so it’s time to think about Christmas… Bird Counts! The Northampton CBC is scheduled for Sunday, December 18; click the link for full details if you’d like to get involved! Our club’s annual Members’ Meeting also takes place this month, when instead of having a long presentation by a single speaker, we’ll see a few slides each from several club members. Anyone who doesn’t feel up to counting birds or presenting slides can still participate by bringing food to the meeting or the CBC potluck! If that’s not enough action, the Athol CBC is scheduled for Saturday December 17, and the CBCs for the Quabbin, Greenfield, and other local areas should be scheduled soon, if they haven’t been already….

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!
