Birding Organizations in Colorado

There are several birding organizations in the state that offer field trips and other benefits to members and non-members. If you have an organization you’d like to get listed, send us a message with your information.


Arkansas Valley Audubon Society – Headquartered in Pueblo, AVAS offers many opportunities to birders in Southeast Colorado.

Audubon Rockies – exists to inspire and work with people to conserve, restore and enjoy natural habitats in our state. We focus on birds and other wildlife through education, research, careful use of our resources, and by serving as strong voices for the natural world.

Boulder Bird Club – invites you to join us and enjoy the bird life of Boulder and surrounding areas.

Colorado Field Ornithologists – CFO is devoted to the study, conservation, and enjoyment of Colorado’s birds, and we are looking for bird enthusiasts just like you. CFO has also developed a fantastic resource for birder’s, the Colorado County Birding website.

Denver Audubon
Denver Audubon is an independent chapter of the National Audubon Society. The “independent” means that the national organization provides only a small fraction of our funding and that we direct our own mission and initiatives. This allows us to focus on local issues that matter to you, right in your backyard.

Grand Valley Audubon Society – Through the power of education, research, and individual action, the Grand Valley Audubon Society strives to preserve a diversity of habitats for birds and other wildlife, and a sustainable, healthy environment for Western Colorado, the nation and the world.

Denver Field Ornithologists – Our mission is to promote interest in the study and preservation of birds and their habitats. Members are encouraged (through meeting presentations and field trips) to learn about birds in the field, noting species and numbers, while familiarizing themselves with their songs and calls, as well as habits and habitats.

Roaring Fork Audubon Society – To promote the enjoyment, conservation and understanding of birds, other wildlife and their habitats through birding, education, advocacy and fellowship.
