Montgomery Bird Club

Montgomery Bird Club members range from new birders to serious bird enthusiasts. People of all ages and experience levels are welcome to join. If you are new to birding, our members will be happy to help you get started and pass along their knowledge through a variety of interesting field trips. All of our field trips and monthly Club meetings can be found in the event calendar.

Visit the Montgomery Bird Club Website

Our meetings are held at the Potomac Presbyterian Church, 10301 River Road. Doors open at 7:00 p.m., refreshments 7:30 and meeting starts at 8:00 p.m. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our latest meetings have been virtual. At this point (early June 2020) we do not know when in-person meetings will resume. Welcome to our site and happy birding. 

By joining the Montgomery Bird Club you have the opportunity to participate in monthly Club meetings with interesting presentations and speakers and to join Club field trips to a wide variety of interesting birding locations. You will receive The Chatthe Club newsletter, and Maryland Ornithological Society’s newsletter The Maryland Yellowthroat and the journal Maryland Birdlife.
