Today begins a new series on the blog: 31 days to Better Birding and Conservation. Throughout the month of October we will be listing daily tips and ideas on how to improve not only as a birder, but as a bird conservationist!
A few weeks back we attended the Midwest Birding Symposium, a birding festival held every two years at various locations in the Midwest. Birding festivals are great places to meet a lot of new birders (and see old friends). Plus, by attending workshops and field trips, you can increase your knowledge base both about birds and about how to help our feathered friends.
