Welcome to the home page of the Lancaster County Bird Club. The club had its beginnings in December 1937 and has been active ever since in pursuit of its goals: to record the observation of bird life in the county, to disseminate in a popular manner the result of such observations, to provide education concerning the habits and identification of birds and to secure the cultivation of public sentiment in the preservation of our native bird life. Articles of Incorporation were filed and approved by the Department of State on December 12, 1983, under the Pennsylvania Nonprofit Corporation Law of 1972.
Lancaster County's location in southcentral Pennsylvania makes it home to many diverse habitats that are attractive, not only to breeding birds, but also to migratory species. The Susquehanna River, the Furnace Hills, the Lancaster County Parks System, Octoraro Lake, Muddy Run Reservoir, Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area, sites owned by the Lancaster County Conservancy, and the vast agricultural areas all provide excellent birding opportunities.
We hope you will benefit by your use of this website and, if you ever visit Lancaster County, we wish you "Good Birding!"
