Join the Brooklyn bird club and participate in field trips in Brooklyn and around the metropolitan area.
Founded in 1909 by Dr. Edward Vietor, the Brooklyn Bird Club celebrated its 100th year in 2009. Over those years many experienced and influential ornithologists and wildlife artists have been members, made presentations at our meetings or have participated in our field programs.
Participate in bird club activities and sharpen your bird watching skills, learn about field identification, population distribution, migration, and urban habitats. It is also a great opportunity to meet new people who share a common interest in birds, wildlife, and the outdoors.
Members receive our e-newsletter, The Clapper Rail, which is emailed three times annually, containing field notes, trip reports, club announcements, and other articles of interest contributed by club members.
Field trips are held frequently from Labor Day until late June, and occasionally in summer, and are lead by experienced and knowledgeable birders.
Meetings are held at the Litchfield Villa in Prospect Park. Check this page frequently to see if a meeting is scheduled.
Ongoing field studies include the annual December Brooklyn Christmas Bird Census, January's Waterfowl Count, and February's Great Backyard Census. May brings the International Bird Migration Day (The "Birdathon") and the occasional Prospect Park Breeding Bird Census, with other studies in planning.
Membership costs $20.00 for the year (member year runs from January 1-December 31).
