A special program is planned for every club meeting,
Our meetings are open to the public and you are very welcome to join us.
WINTER WATERFOWL OF SUSSEX COUNTY – Fri. January 19, 2018, at 7:30 pm
Birding in winter? Yes! You don’t need to stay indoors during the winter months! As long as there is open water or fields without snow cover, there are good opportunities to bird for waterfowl. From Canada and snow geese that fill corn fields by the hundreds, to diving ducks in the midst of courtship rituals, to the colorful dabbling ducks mingling among them all, there is plenty to find and see. Learn about the different types of waterfowl, how they feed, and where to look for them. Admission is free, so bring the family!
MEMBERS’ NIGHT – Fri. February 16, 2018, at 7:30 pm
This is our annual members’ night! Bring your photography, artwork, woodwork, sculpture, or any other example of your talent (doesn’t have to be bird related) to share with fellow club members. Please contact Paul Barta if you plan to show slides or a video so we can coordinate a timeline to accommodate everyone.

MAGNIFICENT MONARCHS – Fri, May 18th, at 7:30 pm
Please join the Sussex County Bird Club at 7:30 pm on Friday, May 18, 2018, for “Magnificent Monarchs” presented by club member Deborah Bifulco, who has been raising and releasing monarch butterflies for several years. She will give us a brief overview of the amazing multi-generation migration of monarchs, followed by a guide to raising monarchs from egg to butterfly. Learn about why, in the wild, less than 5% of monarch eggs ever become butterflies, and what you can do to change the statistics! Admission is free, so bring the family!
