Welcome to Birding in the Boulder Valley

The Boulder Bird Club invites you to join us and enjoy the bird life of Boulder and surrounding areas.

Come and share our enthusiasm for bird watching and meet new birding friends. Learn more about birds and their behaviors as we observe them in the field.

We welcome birdwatchers of all skill levels, including beginners. Those under 16 should be accompanied by a responsible adult and we welcome visitors and guests on all our trips.

About the Boulder Bird Club

The Boulder Bird Club was founded in 1947 and is "dedicated to the field observation of birds".

It is our firm belief that persons who become interested in birds will continue to care for our birding environment and will be the caretakers of our natural resources. We invite you to be one of these caretakers of our earth.

We keep our dues small so that everyone can be a part of our club and learn to enjoy the birds and the Colorado great outdoors. We welcome all birders, whether advanced or novice, and children who are interested when accompanied by an adult. Please, no pets are allowed on our trips except service dogs.
