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.

Christmas Bird Count Season is Upon Us!

We are preparing for two upcoming Christmas Bird Counts this weekend: Saturday, December 18th [Rockford] and Sunday, December 19th [Rock Cut State Park]. The weather looks to be cold but not as bad as past counts.

If you haven’t signed up for a count, head on over to Audubon and sign up to one in your area!

Here’s a wonderful map of the majority of count circles in Illinois and date/contact information.

Ermine (Mustela erminea)

When we are out counting we always try to keep an eye for other cool creatures besides birds.
