The current 2023 design of

Description is a spinoff birdwatching WordPress blog launched in 2022. It is a place to share smaller birding experiences and random thoughts.


In December 2022, Birding Blog was launched to compliment my main efforts on Because Birds. I loved the domain name so much I felt the need to grab it and see what it can turn into.


Birding Blog is a secondary place for me to share bird-related thoughts and experiences that come to mind. I plan to continue using it to write about ongoing bird recording trips, photography, and other fun things I may not want to post on directly on Because Birds.
