The Hampshire Bird Club wants all who attend our meetings, field trips and events to feel appreciated, safe, and supported in their birding endeavors. We strive to become a more diverse, just, and inclusive bird club. Birdwatching is a joyful activity that can bring people together across all differences. We welcome all who are interested in birds, without regard to race, gender, gender identity, color, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, political affiliation, level of birding knowledge or experience. Please read our HBC Code of Birding Ethics and Conduct. We invite your participation!

THE HBC BOARD MEETS ON-LINE THE FIRST THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH, unless otherwise noted.

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!
