Birding Around Your Yard and Around the World


Welcome to

Our goal is to help people learn about birds and enjoy bird watching

Here you'll find helpful articles and discussions about all things birding, from how to identify birds to feeding birds, where to find them, what tools can help you be a better birder, and answers to some common questions.  We hope you enjoy it!

After birding for over 50 years on all seven continents and attending countless birding festivals, industry trade shows and birding conventions, I thought I might be able to help you make the right choices when buying new feeders, optics and field guides. I can also let you know what the hot new products are this month. - Pete Thayer, President, Thayer Birding Software
