Join and support your local bird club.

Local, state and national bird clubs.

Joining a local bird club can be a great way to meet other people who love birds. It's fun getting together and sharing stories and our love of our feathered friends with other bird lovers.

Bird Clubs of Virginia is a non-profit federation of Virginia clubs. Each year the Bird Clubs of Virginia holds a convention as part of its goal to provide education to aviculturists and to support avian research and conservation. Join us for our 26th Convention on Mar. 27-28, 2010 in Fredericksburg VA.
