Welcome, Fellow Birders!
The Monticello Bird Club is an informal group of about 175 people who join together to share their enthusiasm for birds. The 2020-2021 season marks the thirty-fifth anniversary of the Monticello Bird Club. Our meetings and field trips are always open to the public without charge. If you want to learn more about bird identification and behavior, or if you just want to talk to others with similar interests, please join us soon on a field trip or at a meeting.
Field trips with experienced leaders to local or distant sites take us to where the birds are. You don’t have to be a member to join us on any of our birding field trips. Follow this link for information about our currently scheduled field trips. (Please note: all scheduled field trips for the foreseeable future are canceled due to the ongoing pandemic).
Monticello Bird Club monthly meetings feature invited speakers from throughout the state who share their expertise with entertaining and informative presentations. Meeting time is 7:00 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month, September through May. The club normally meets in the Education Building at Ivy Creek Natural Area located on Earlysville Road, about a half mile from the intersection of Hydraulic Road, just before the reservoir. (However, due to the pandemic, we are currently meeting virtually via Zoom.) Hope to see you there at future meetings! Click here for a map to the Ivy Creek Natural Area.
