Your Birding Journey

Bird watching can be a fun casual hobby or an equally enjoyable full-time competitive lifestyle. It can be relaxed, social, high-energy, focused, etc. Some specialized birding interests include goals for high diversity, specific groups like warblers or ducks, rarities, or photography, to name a few. I would love to plan an outing that best suits your birding journey.
