Chenango Bird Club celebrates 25 years

CHENANGO COUNTY – For the past 25 years, Chenango County’s bird lovers have been meeting to hear speakers discuss bird and nature-related topics, to go on bird watching field trips and to promote and support environmental conservation and the proper maintenance of bird habitats.



The Chenango Bird Club was started in 1983, and according to the group’s editor, and one of the founding members, Donald Windsor, “the impetus was the beginning of the New York State Breeding Bird Atlas.” From 1980 to 1985, the first New York State Breeding Bird Atlas project was completed. The project divided the state into ten regions, each divided into multiple blocks, and teams of volunteers were responsible for traveling through the blocks assigned to them and identifying the birds in that area. Volunteers assigned to Chenango County and the surrounding area formed together to create the Chenango Bird Club.
