Anne Arundel Bird Club

The Anne Arundel Bird Club, organized in 1954, is one of 15 chapters of the Maryland Ornithological Society which is dedicated to the protection and conservation of birdlife and other natural resources. The AABC hosts monthly meetings, numerous field trips, lectures and other activities throughout the year. AABC welcomes birders from Charles, Calvert and St. Mary’s counties to join AABC.

From September through May the Club meets on the third Wednesday of every month at 7:00 pm. Meetings feature an illustrated nature program by qualified professional and amateur speakers. Our meetings are held at two of Anne Arundel County’s parks – Kinder Farm Park in Severna Park and Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis.

We are pleased to partner with both parks to promote bird appreciation, education and conservation. And we are grateful to the Friends of Kinder Farm Park and the Friends of Quiet Waters Park for their support.

Birding in Anne Arundel County

Anne Arundel County is a great location to enjoy bird observation. Its varied habitats allow birdwatchers to find many different species, and seasonal changes are very significant. The County’s large amount of shoreline provides birding opportunities not available to some other nearby regions. While increasing development has diminished the amount of forests, fields, and accessible beach, knowledgeable birders can often find favorable areas where these habitats remain, and ready access to the Eastern Shore allows for day trips to less developed areas.
