The Chickadee

About The Chickadee


The Chickadee is the annual publication of the Forbush Bird Club.

It includes bird sightings reported by Club members, during Forbush trips and on other occasions.

Such compiled sighting data becomes a valuable resource for everyone interested in the status and health of the birds in our ecosystem.

The Chickadee publications from 1931 to the most recent published year are available on this website. See the page Reports & Sightings | Issues of The Chickadee.


Submit Sightings for The Chickadee

The annual compilation of sightings found in our annual publication,  The Chickadee, relies on members submitting checklists and reports to the Editor-in Chief, as well as reporting sightings on the internet and eBird. Please support us by continuing this tradition.

Please submit Bird Sightings for inclusion in the Club’s members’ publication, The Chickadee. There are two ways to submit your sightings.
