If you're interested in learning more about birding in the Hampton Roads area, you've come to the right place!

This site introduces you to the Club and provides information about birding in our area. Whether you're an experienced birder or just enjoy watching the birds in your own backyard, we'd love to have you join the Hampton Road Bird Club! Our monthly meetings and field trips provide wonderful learning opportunities and a chance to get to know some really great people!


The purposes of the Club are to:

  • Promote scientific study and the recording of bird habitat

  • Cooperate with national, state, and local organizations toward the conservation and education in the fields of natural resources and ornithology
