Community Resources

The birding community has expanded and connected in many new ways over the past few decades, both locally and globally, providing many new opportunities to get involved with birding and other birders. Birding alone can be a beautiful, meditative experience. But if you’d like to join up with other birders, there are many opportunities, in New York City and beyond. Here we share recommended bird-related conservation organizations, natural history societies, birding clubs, blogs, and online chat boards.
