About the Brooklyn Bird Club

The Brooklyn Bird Club was founded in 1909 by Dr. Edward Vietor, and currently has over 150 active members. Our mission is to promote birdwatching in Brooklyn and beyond:

Our members range from novice birders to skilled naturalists, in all age groups. The club sponsors weekly field trips to areas in Brooklyn as well as other birding hot-spots in the tri-state area. We hold monthly meetings on such topics as warbler identification, bird song, nature photography, conservation, butterflies, bats, and environmental concerns.

We also do presentations for scouting and school groups and other community organizations, and participate in the annual Christmas Bird Count, Winter Waterfowl Count, and Breeding Bird Census. Recently we were instrumental in having Prospect Park declared an "Important Bird Area" by the National Audubon Society.
