Membership Benefits

    • You become a member of a group that is active throughout the whole of Andalucía.
    • You receive a copy of the Andalucía Systematic List and Checklist, which is a full list of the birds that have been seen in Andalucía.
    • You receive a smart ABS Sticker to put in the window of your car.
    • You are given access to the members area of the official website.
    • You receive a Bi-monthly Members Mailing with news of recent sightings, articles by members and forthcoming events.
    • You are able to attend our Field Meetings. These are monthly field outings led by expert bird watchers visiting various parts of Andalucía, plus other nearby provinces. These outings help both the beginner and the expert to improve their birding skills and knowledge of new locations.
    • You receive a twelve-month calendar of our Field Meetings so that you can plan in advance the meetings you wish to attend.
    • You receive a free copy of the magazine “Birds of Andalucía” every quarter.
    • You are able to attend and vote at the two Society Annual Meetings held usually in January and July of each year. This allows members to have the opportunity to meet and hear details of the Society’s current work and to have a say in the future direction of the Society.
    • You have an opportunity to take part in province and national surveys, and to have your own bird records incorporated into our open database for birds here in Andalucía.
    • Attend conservation projects.

Unlike the majority of societies, who normally work on subscriptions running only for the calendar year regardless of when subscriptions are received, new members will enjoy at least 365 days of membership from the date of their payment. Your membership renewal date will then be on the first day of the month following the month in which you joined.
