Welcome to the New River Valley Bird Club Home Page. We are a local chapter of the state organization, the Virginia Society of Ornithology. Our club is dedicated to furthering the enjoyment and understanding of birds.
Meetings are held on each first Wednesday September through May. Our December meeting will be held via Zoom only. Members will participate by sending up to 10 photos to Jerry Via. Beginning in 2023 our meetings will be held at the Blacksburg Community Center on Patrick Henry Dr. See calender and/or monthly newsletter for details. We begin at 7:00 p.m. with an informal business meeting where we share sightings, announce scheduled field trips, and plan for future events. The short business session is followed by a program with a guest speaker. We encourage you to check out our "Event Calendar" for detailed information.
In addition to our monthly meetings, we offer several fields trips each month. Anyone with an interest in birds, regardless of their experience, is invited to join us. This is a great way to get started in birding or to discover some of the exciting birding areas in the western part of Virginia. Details about these trips can be found by clicking "Event Calendar". If you have a specific question that is not addressed on this site, or if you are new to the area and would like to introduce yourself, please contact us at NRVBirdClub@gmail.com.
