The Rochester Birding Association, based in Rochester, New York, was established in 1975. We are very well versed in birding, bird watching equipment, bird songs, and everything else bird related. Contact us if you have questions regarding any birding activities.

Situated on the southern shore of Lake Ontario, Rochester NY is a great place for birding, bird watching and bird field trips. Those of us who live and bird this area are very thankful for the diversity of birds we get to experience. We hope you can join us sometime.

New members are always welcome!
Our members have fun while seriously pursuing birding. To obtain an RBA membership form, click here. Print out and fill in the form. Mail the completed form with a check to John Boettcher, our membership chair at:

What's New or


RBA is still looking for a Social Chair. Please contact lynnbergmeyer@gmail.com regarding interest in this position and with offers to take on certain Social Committee responsibilities, e.g. someone to coordinate the monthly refreshments (you don't need to physically be present at the monthly meeting to do this!).

There are also small assignments that can be taken on to help Jay Greenberg, the Little Gull Editor, in the upcoming months. Our new co-chairs, Tony Ford and Brandon Taylor, are looking for additional members to help input and/or analyze data. Other small, one time activities e.g. manning our booth at a few events this spring are needed (contact David Allen to volunteer).
