Love to bird?  Looking for chances and places to go birding?  Want to learn more about birds and birding?  This might be the group for you.

We are a loosely organized group of locals who love birding. Some have years of experience observing and identifying birds. Some of us are backyard birders, building our list of recognizable birds. All of us want to learn more about the birds who reside in, migrate through, or occasionally visit our area.

This website is our way to keep in touch about:

–Bird Club meetings,

–community birding events,

–bird sitings and locations,

–ways to assist our local bird population

–internet sites of interest to birders

We are a work in progress. Let us know what else you’d like to see included.

To become a member of the Franklin Bird Club, simply attend a meeting or walk and provide your name and email address.  There are no fees, though occassionally we may take donations for opperating costs or to support local organization (ex.  F.R.O.G.S and the Greenway.)  This site and emails will notify you of upcoming events.  Hope to see you soon.

  1. We appreciate the Franklin Bird Club letting us join your walk today. Maria and I both left thinking “what a nice group of people”. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would have never identified the juvenile blue bird I had taken a photo of yesterday. Thank you.

  2. Mary Fisher–In the days before Covid, the Franklin Bird Club held meetings in February, April, June, August, and October at the Macon County Public Library. We are getting back into action beginning in May, 2022, with our weekly Greenway Bird Walks. Please continue to follow this page. When meetings are scheduled, you will be notified here.

  3. I am newly located behind Jim Warren Park. Seeing lots of songbirds. Any recommendations on best bird identifier. Guide book, phone ap? Are there any chat groups to join? Thanks, Caroline
