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.
The Club is a chapter of the Maryland Ornithological Society (MOS). Members of the Cecil Bird Club are automatically enrolled as members of MOS, and receive all the publications and information from that organization, including a bimonthly newsletter, statewide field trips, an annual conference, a bimonthly newsletter (The Maryland Yellowthroat), a scientific journal (Maryland Birdlife), published twice a year, and an online guide to birding spots throughout Maryland Maryland Birding Guide
The Club sponsors a full schedule of field trips in Cecil County and nearby locations. Club members also participate in national events such as the Audubon Christmas Count and spring migration counts.
Anyone who enjoys watching birds should join the Cecil Bird Club. Beginners as well as experienced birders are invited and encouraged to become members.
