About Us

The Cayuga Bird Club (CBC), founded in 1913, provides its members and the community at large with opportunities to learn about birds, local birding localities, and the environment. The CBC has a rich history and is composed of a diverse group of people from various professions and backgrounds, whose common bond is a keen interest in the observation and preservation of bird life. 


Members and non-members may attend field trips and monthly meetings, though the club encourages everyone to become a member.

A monthly club newsletter is available that lists birding news from around the basin, upcoming field trips and numerous other items of interest to local birders and environmentalists.This is automatically emailed to all members; non-members can download it from the website.

Please note that special "reservations-only" field trips may be limited to CBC members.

To purchase or renew membership, or to make a donation, see our membership page.
