The South Shore Bird Club (SSBC) was founded in 1946 and the first members set out to explore and share the birds and birding habitats of the South Shore of Massachusetts.

We still concentrate on a variety of mainly local field trips. Many trips involve car-pooling.

In case of inclement weather please check back on this website or contact leader.

Non-members are always welcome. 

Please read and adhere to the ABA birding code of ethics
