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.

Mining for Declining Birds

American Bird Conservancy The American Bird Conservancy is working to restore land around decommissioned mines. Partnered with the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, the goal is to manage habitat for breeding Cerulean Warblers, Wood Thrushes, and other mature forest birds.
