Tilted Barn Brewery, Exeter, RI
Join OSBC Board Member Nick Pacelli and others at the Tilted Barn Brewery in Exeter, RI for an evening of conversations about birds and birding. See old friends, meet new ones, or just simply listen in on all the conversations regarding birds and birding. It's been a while so there should be plenty to talk about. For people interested in having a meal, food trucks will be available outside. Please note, all food and drink purchases are the responsibility of the purchaser and not the Ocean State Bird Club. Hope to see you there.

This year's Annual Meeting will once again take place over Zoom. The meeting will not have a speaker but rather focus on the business portion of the meeting. This means hearing from the president, listening to the Treasurer's Report, and participating in the election of officers. A Zoom link will be emailed to all members prior to the event. Stay tuned.
- Ocean State Bird Club Executive Board
“But in the early 1970s, we were not birdwatching. We were birding, and that made all the difference. We were out to seek, to discover, to chase, to learn, to find as many different kinds of birds as possible — and, in friendly competition, to try to find more of them than the next birder. We became a community of birders, with the complications that human societies always have; and although it was the birds that had brought us together, our story became a human story after all.”
