Join us for bird walks, field trips, and meetups to find birds in the Philadelphia area. BirdPhilly is an initiative of the Delaware Valley Ornithological Club. Founded in 1890, the DVOC has been based at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia since 1891. Through BirdPhilly our goal is to increase interest and awareness of the region’s birds by providing quality birding experiences on expertly guided field trips. Most field trips are free, and open to kids and adults. Meetups are less organized outings at local bird "hotspots".
