Since 1992, birders from around New England have come together every March to attend Mass Audubon’s annual Birders Meeting. With the help of supportive sponsors, we have successfully brought together engaging speakers from around the country, been joined by top-notch vendors, and drawn enthusiastic participants to these daylong events.

Warblers: From Soundscapes to Landscapes
The theme of the 25th Annual Birders Meeting is Warblers: From Soundscapes to Landscapes. Warblers—colorful, animated, and diverse creatures that they are—have much to teach us about the avian world.
The 2017 Birders Meeting will feature various aspects of warbler natural history, from ecology and taxonomy to song and conservation.
For more information about the meeting, please contact Marj Rines at 781-259-2152 or email@example.com.
