Harford Bird Club
Welcome to the Harford Bird Club. Harford County is located in the northeast part of Maryland at the head of the Chesapeake Bay and offers a diverse habitat for both breeding and migrating bird species. With the bay and the Susquehanna River on the eastern border and Little Gunpowder Falls on the western border there is a variety of habitats. Four State Parks, Susquehanna, Palmer, Rocks and Gunpowder, as well as Eden Mill, Harford Glen, and Conowingo Dam offer excellent birding opportunities. A total of 310 species have been recorded in Harford County.
Harford Bird Club dues are payable in September of each year. Dues include chapter membership, the Maryland Birdlife journal, Maryland Yellowthroat newsletter, and membership in the statewide Maryland Ornithological Society (MOS).

The membership year starts off with a Fall picnic. This is not a business meeting, but a friendly gathering to enjoy the fine food provided and talk about the summer birding activities. The next four meetings are business meetings and are held on the first Friday in November, March and May and the second Friday in January. These meetings are held at the Churchville Presbyterian Church – 2844 Churchville Rd, Churchville, MD. The November, March and May meetings include a dinner provided by the ladies of the church. After the business portion of the meeting is over, a guest speaker provides a program of interest to the members. Our Summer Social meeting in July consists of light refreshments and socializing followed by a guest speaker. See the most recent newsletter for information about the next meeting.

The Harford Bird Club serves the local community by providing a venue for those who are interested in birds and birding to get together and share their interests. The club sponsors a very active calendar of field trips. In addition, we hold six meetings a year.
