Welcome to a new year with the Franklin Bird Club.

As always, Jean has gathered programs with something for everyone, from beginning to experienced birders and from  frequent travelers to backyard birders.  Plan to meet new experts, as well as visiting with our favorites at bird club meetings.  We meet the 2nd Monday of Feb., April, June, Aug., and October.

Thanks, Tim, for a terrific start to our new year.  Your backyard–and beyond– photos are an inspiration to the photographer in all of us.  Including equipment, birding groups, birding hot-spots, print and online resources sent birders of every level home with new places to bird and ways to improve their skills.
