Where to Start?
Come with us on a field trip if you want to know more about this thing called birding! Birders are happy, helpful people who love to share identification tips, and show you birds. We'll let you take a look through our binos, and demonstrate birding apps. Ask a bunch of questions. You'll have a good idea where to head next.
