Cecil Bird Club

The Cecil Bird Club is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the understanding and enjoyment of birds, as well as the conservation of habitats. We are located in Cecil County, Maryland, in the northeast corner of the state. Our county offers prime birding habitat including the shorelines of the upper Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, forests, grasslands, and agricultural fields.

Founded in 1994, the Club sponsors recreational and social events, educational programs, information exchange, research on bird populations, and cooperation on issues important to the future of birds.
