Bristol Bird Club

The new site is being transitioned to Mountain Empire Birds.  Welcome aboard and thanks for your support of this website. (1/19/17)

The Bristol Bird Club was founded in Bristol, Tennessee, Bristol, Virginia in 1950 to promote the enjoyment, scientific study and conservation of wild birds.

It is the Stephen M. Russell Chapter of the Tennessee Ornithological Society and is a member club of the Virginia Society of Ornithology.

We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, except June and September, 7:30 pm, at the Bristol, Va. Public Library.  We have members from a large area in Virginia and Tennessee.  Everyone is welcome to join.
