Feminist Bird Club - SF Bay
Welcome! We’re a birdwatching club dedicated to promoting diversity in birding and providing a safe opportunity to connect with the natural world while fundraising to protect the rights of LGBTQIA+ folks, women and people of color.  

We believe that feminism stems from a conviction that all people should be treated equally and that a feminist is an activist for everyone.

🐦 Upcoming Events

Birding While Sheltering

We have some great virtual events coming up, we hope you can join us! Most will be announced in our monthly newsletter and will be hosted on Instagram by @feministbirdclub. 


👩‍💻 July 18, at 7pm PST: Virtual Bird BINGO night! 

Sign up to receive a custom BINGO card by email. During the event, we'll call out birds first by song, then by name, and finally by showing the photo. We'll focus on Bay Area species, but everyone and all bird ID skill levels are welcome! We have two (sold out!) FBC 2020 patches to give away as prizes.
(Shoutout to FBC Chicago for the BINGO idea.)

To be rescheduled:

(previously April 2020) Bird Noticing with Jenny Odell in Glen Canyon, SF (GGAS Fundraising).
