About the Sussex Bird Club

The Sussex Bird Club was formed in 1982 by its first president Bill Fintel, and has grown to over 100 members. Meetings are held at the Lewes Public Library seven times a year, generally on the second Sunday of the month. (There are no meetings in June, July, August, or December.) Business transactions are kept short, and there is always an interesting program related to wild birds. 

The Sussex Bird Club's primary objective is to promote the knowledge and enjoyment of wild birds through guided field trips and monthly meetings about various aspects of birding.

 

Our meetings, field trips, and events are open to all. We have an exciting schedule of field trips to the many outstanding birding areas within Sussex County, as well as trips to birding hotspots beyond Delaware's borders. Beginning birders are always welcome, and birders of all levels will enjoy the camaraderie and the variety of birding experiences.  

 

Our members are interested in bird conservation, and many volunteer in other capacities, such as monitoring piping plover nests or supporting the Hawk Watch at Cape Henlopen State Park.

 More detailed information on these and other activities can be reached via the menu bar at the top, or by clicking on the buttons below, or by sending an email to sussexbirdclub@gmail.com
