Info for Field Trip Leaders

On the group pile at Halibut Point State Park in Rockport with Peter Van Demark, June 6, 2021.

The Brookline Bird Club conducts birding trips in New England. Birding belongs to everyone: we welcome all who enjoy and care about birds, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, birding experience or skill level.

We encourage you to suggest new spots for our birding trips. Please let us know if there’s a place near where you live that you would recommend.

The Club is always looking for birders to lead club trips. All you need is enthusiasm and a desire to share your birding experience and knowledge. The time commitment can be as short or as long as you wish, so consider sharing the pleasure of your favorite birding hotspot. If you are interested in leading a trip for the club, contact the Field Trip Coordinator.

Please review the above guidelines for how best to lead a trip. If you have any suggestions to make trips better, please email the Field Trip Coordinator.

Trip leaders should report their trips sighting to eBird and share with the club eBird account (username: BrooklineBirdClub). These trip reports are helpful to participants and we hope that our sightings will benefit future conservation efforts and to help us and others to better understand the population dynamics of the birds in our region.
