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.

Young Birders Network

A part of eBird, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Black Swamp Bird Observatory have teamed up to create the Young Birders Network.

The Young Birders Network aims to provide resources for young birders to connect and learn, while giving their adult advocates resources to encourage and support. Though the network is primarily geared for ages 12-18, younger birders and college students alike may also find relevant resources. The network is coordinated by the Black Swamp Bird Observatory and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and includes dozens of partners. – Young Birders Network

The YBN has a list of Young Birder Regional Clubs as well as a list of young birder blogs. There are many fine young bird bloggers out there, so check them out!

You can also access eBird directly through the YBN and submit your checklists (highly recommended).

Plus, if your state is lacking in the young birder club category, there is a young birder club toolkit available to get the ball rolling.

So, check out the Young Birders Network now!
