I've built and continue to build this website so that people have a place where they can learn the different habits of the most common backyard birds. While there are plenty of large university bird oriented websites written by students earning their degrees, this site tries to place as much free infomation in one place and hopefully, from a perspective that is unique to this site.
My love of birds began as a child on a farm back in the mid 60's. I found a baby pigeon (squab, I've learned they're called) and fell in love with birds.
I took care of that pigeon until it was able to fly away. I watched as it selected a mate, built a nest and laid eggs.
We moved before the eggs hatched, but that experience started a journey into birdwatching and bird behavior that has lasted over 40 years and continues to this day.
I wanted to share with others who enjoy birds and who might have questions about the birds in their own backyard.
In building this website, I've referenced several different text that I use for my own study of bird behavior and identification.
My intent is to provide an interesting website where the novice birder can find information and products that will add to the enjoyment of bird watching.
I spend a lot of my free time walking local nature areas and videoing birds in their native habitat. I hope you find something of interest on this website and return often.
