The Evanston North Shore Bird Club is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to the study, protection and enjoyment of wild birds and the protection of natural resources.  As a member of the Bird Conservation Network, we work to bring bird conservation issues before the public and to help resolve them.

The Club offers monthly program nights September through April on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 7:30 at the Ecology Center,  2024 McCormick Blvd., corner of Bridge St., in Evanston.

We also sponsor many field trips to local birding spots, especially during spring migration season, as well as national and international trips.

All Programs and local trips are free and open to the public.   Members receive quarterly newsletters, a member Directory, schedules, and regular e-news. 

We encourage both new and experienced birders and people interested in natural history and the local natural landscape to join the ENSBC community and to help to make a better world for wildlife and people.

Please consider supporting ENSBC through a tax-deductible donation. 


Hope is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tunes without the words—
And never stops—at all—

And sweetest — in the Gale — is heard
And sore must be the storm —
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm —

I've heard it in the chillest land—
And on the strangest Sea—
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb — of Me.

--Emily Dickinson, Poem 254, ca. 1861
