Birding

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.

Conservation

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.

Launch! – Book Review Library

After a few weeks of work I am happy to announce the launching of the Birdfreak Book Review Library!

As of launching, the database includes 95 titles, all with links to reviews previously posted on the blog as well as links to purchase through Amazon Affiliate links.

Currently you can sort by book title or search by category or just view all the books and browse for what you like!

I hope to add more features in the future, so I’ll call this “Version 1.0” of the library. Also, I have a large pile of books that are awaiting review which I plan to get to as the daylight hours get shorter.

If you have any suggestions or comments please feel free to add them below! Ideas for category names would be appreciated too.

The entire library runs on PHP connecting to a MySQL database.

You can view the library now or find the link in the yellow box below the gray category sections.

Enjoy!
