Howard County Bird Club

A Chapter of the Maryland Ornithological Society (MOS)

Field Trip Reports

Ever since the Howard County Bird Club was founded in 1972, field trips have been a vital part of the club's activities. These trips are an ideal way for both the beginner and the more experienced observer to learn and to share knowledge in an informal atmosphere. Families are encouraged to participate; children with an adult are welcome. Binoculars and a field guide are recommended but are not necessary.

It did not take very long before the leaders started recording the birds seen. Soon a notebook was passed from leader to leader to ensure a permanent record. (The original book was lost in the 1970s.)

With the availability of a web page, we put the results of the club's birding field trips into an electronic format; trip leaders enter the results on the web or by email, and the results are posted as soon as the information is formatted.

Below are field trip results by calendar year. Some of the trips were organized on a different theme, but if participants kept track of birds that could be reported here, those trips are also included.
