Welcome to the Pendleton Birder's Website!

Thank you for visiting our website!

The Pendleton Bird Club formed in 2003 and now has almost 200 members. We are an active group of enthusiastic birders who love to share our fascination of birds and birding. We schedule meetings 8 months of the year (October through May) and often invite out of town guest speakers to share their knowledge on birding topics. The general public is welcome and encouraged to attend our meetings which are often accompanied by potluck dinners (see the Club's Calendar of Events at the bottom of this page.)

Also, feel free to browse through our large selection of monthly Kakya Taymut Newsletters in the Newsletter Archive Library where we have more than 168 Newsletter articles and updates on birding adventures and Umatilla County bird checklists dating back to 2003. For additional information, feel free to contact us at for inquiries to birding Umatilla County.
