My Upcoming Trips and Tours with Mass Audubon




Local Resources and Links



MASSBIRD.ORG is a list of links of interest to Massachusetts birders and hosts pages for local bird clubs without charge. It is presented as a service of Bird Observer.





Bird Observer, a bimonthly journal, is THE print resource for local birding information. It has articles on where-to-go (with maps), bird ID, scientific studies, and sighting records. It is produced by an all volunteer staff (including me!)

Massachusetts Audubon Society is active in conservation, education and preservation and has sanctuaries around the state.

Have a question about natural history or wildlife regulatory matters in Massachusetts? Try sending a message to the new Mass. Division of Fisheries and Wildlife public information e-mail address.

Looking for somewhere to go birding in Essex County? Check out the Essex County Birding Trail.





Brookline Bird Club is one of the oldest (and most active) bird clubs in the USA.
