• Survey on Bird Conservation Behavior

    Dr. Terry Rich is a life-long birder and professional ornithologist and is currently a PhD candidate in Public Policy at Boise State University. His research is focused on how birders contribute to bird conservation and the results will be used to improve public policies for bird conservation.

    He is asking DVOC members to complete an online survey so that he can collect important data from our geographic area. Participation is voluntary, no personally identifiable information will be collected, and all responses will be kept confidential. This study is for educational purposes only and involves no foreseeable serious risks. Data will be accessible only to Dr. Rich and his advisory committee and will be used to produce scholarly and popular publications on the topic. If there are any questions that make you uncomfortable or that you would prefer not to answer, just skip over those. You may discontinue the survey at any time. This survey will require 10-12 minutes of your time.

This trip is timed for the return on wintering waterfowl and gulls. This trip will be at low tide to observe the gulls that roost on a silt bar at the mouth of the Poquessing Creek. We hope to see lesser black-backed and white-winged gulls, common goldeneye, canvasback, great cormorant and bald eagle.

BirdPhilly is an initiative of the Delaware Valley Ornithological Club. Founded in 1890, the DVOC has been based at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia since 1891. The DVOC runs fields trips throughout the tri-state region, however BirdPhilly focuses on trips within in Philadelphia city limits in collaboration with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and the Fairmount Park Conservancy.

Through BirdPhilly our goal is to increase interest and awareness of Philadelphia’s birds by providing quality birding experiences on expertly guided field trips. All field trips are free unless the site charges an admission fee. These trips are open to children, adults, and well behaved pets. BirdPhilly also participates in DVOC’s Philadelphia Bird Race to raise funds for conservation and research projects.

The club enthusiastically welcomes new members – young people, beginners and anyone else who is genuinely interested in birding. Members benefit from the wealth of information and expertise that this club offers. The bi-annual club journal, Cassinia, is provided to members.

New Bins for New Birders (NB4NB)

Partnering with DVOC’s World Series of Birding Team’s corporate sponsor, Nikon Sport Optics, NB4NB is committed to supplying new, serviceable binoculars to organizations that expose young people to birding and the outdoors. We focus on those organizations that are local to the Delaware Valley Region: southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and Delaware.




Each year the DVOC raises money for our Conservation Fund. Most of the funds are raised as part of the DVOC’s participation in NJ Audubon’s World Series of Birding but other donations are certainly accepted. All funds collected in a calendar year are distributed to one or more organizations recommended by the Conservation Committee and approved by Council.
