Getting outdoors, exploring nature is a fun and rewarding experience for kids of all ages. The amazing thing about birds is that no matter where you are, in a city or in remote wilderness area, birds are Everywhere! Kid's natural curiosity is peaked with the discovery of a new bird, watching its behavior and being challenged to identify the species. As they learn about feeding and nesting habits, seasonal migration and threats to the species, kids become invested in conservation and protection of the entire ecosystem. Thus, birds serve as a doorway into a larger global awareness of the interconnection of all species.
The wonderful thing about birding is that it requires very little. Curiosity and patience are the foundation, a pair of binoculars and a field guide beneficial, but not required, We hope that this website will connect young birders from around the state, uniting their passion as they explore their love of birds.
