Bird Blogs We Love - mediablog.prnewswire.com

Last weekend, I went to visit my grandmother in her log home in West Virginia. She’s lived there for years and when I was a kid I was there often. There was no cable and it was pretty removed from everyone else, so going outside and playing by myself was really the only thing to do.

One of the things I liked to do was look at birds and try to match them up with birds in one of my grandma’s books. I know literally nothing about birdwatching now.

1. Because Birds

Jeffrey Mann began Because Birds on Tumblr in 2013 and continued on with it until it relaunched in 2014. His blog is more geared toward beginner birders (so perfect for someone like me) and has a personal touch.

Honestly, one of the things I enjoyed a lot about this blog is Jeffrey’s ability to catch the attention of someone who may just be browsing by posting quizzes.

Posts to check out: QUIZ: What Kind of Owl Are You; and Transitioning from Photographing to Recording Birds.

2. birdgirl

Mya-Rose Craig is a 17-year-old from Bristol, U.K., who’s had an active birding blog since 2014. Her blog posts showcase birding but also do a fair bit of talking about conservation in general.

One of the things that really drew me to this blog was the growth shown by Mya-Rose. Over the period of time she’s had the blog, she’s been involved in conservation activism, organizing and leading nature camps, and speaking at conferences.

Posts I enjoyed: Equality in Nature: Making Wildlife Films Relevant to everyone; and My 5 top birding hotspots for Wonderlust.

3. Bourbon, Bastards & Birds

I was immediately drawn to this blog because it’s hilarious and some of the writing reminds me of Lester Bangs. One series I particularly enjoyed is The Human Birdwatcher Project, where they seek to understand and identify different types of birders.

The blog itself is a collaboration between three different birders: Seagull Steve, The Great Ornithologist Felonious Jive, and Cassowary. The blog was founded back in 2008 by Steve and Jive, but they’ve been birders for a very long time. They’ve made it their goal to bring fun to birding and I find it refreshing.

Posts I loved: South Bay Winter Slumber; and Radius Roundup: Lessons and Results From a 5MR “Big Year”, and The Shortest Big Day.

4. Nemesis Bird

I love how this blog is arranged. The most recent posts shows most prominently and you also can search by article type (identifications, tutorials, essays) or category (photography, science, ID quizzes).

Nemesis Bird is a collection of blog posts and articles from a number of birders with different backgrounds. I like this blog because it has a variety of voices adding to it. It also displays a more scientific side to birding and gets down to the nitty-gritty by offering things like field guides and tips, good for people looking to get into the hobby.

Posts I liked: Life in Queens: A New Patch; and 2019 Top 10 Birding Highlights.
