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.

Bird Links

Our blogroll was getting too huge on the side so we created this page to link up many of the top birding blogs out there. If you’re not on our list, shoot us an email (birdfreak at birdfreak dot com) and we’d be happy to add you (as long as your blog focuses on birding and bird conservation!).
