We love to travel to find new birds and participate in a lot of bird counts. We also created a Guide to Birding Field Guides and host a collection of over 200 birding links from all over the globe.


While our main focus continues to be birds, we promote other areas of conservation as well. Conserving land not only benefits wildlife, but is hugely beneficial to people as well.

Year of the Young Birder

2013 is officially The Year of the Young Birder! We plan on spending the whole year promoting young birder clubs and sharing ideas on how to help student naturalists become lifelong conservationists.

Awesome Common Eider Video

Found this through the cool Lab of Ornithology website redesign blog (Round Robin). This is footage taken by Joel P. Heath, Ph.D. at Belcher Islands, Nunavut.

Common Eider we found in Rhode Island above the water… click the link below to see what they look like underwater!

The video shows a Common Eider diving and feasting on mussel-urchin beds. The best part is the last part when the bird resurfaces!

More information about Joel and his work.
