Friends of Bombay Hook Bird Club
Join us! The Friends' Bird Club focuses on field trips in the fall, winter and spring. Some trips are on the refuge, but others take us to interesting birding sites throughout the region. Everyone, from beginner to veteran expert, is welcome. This is a great way to learn more about birds. If you're an expert, this is a great opportunity to share your knowledge and talk with other birders.
