Ornithology is a branch of zoology that concerns the study of birds.
“ But in the early 1970s, we were not birdwatching. We were birding, and that made all the difference. We were out to seek, to discover, to chase, to learn, to find as many different kinds of birds as possible — and, in friendly competition, to try to find more of them than the next birder. We became a community of birders, with the complications that human societies always have; and although it was the birds that had brought us together, our story became a human story after all. ”

[close] Welcome to Birds! Eclectus Parrots (Eclectus roratus) For all bird lovers—wrap yourself in the realm of birds and share your experiences while birding! We will read books about and relating to birds, giving us a broader and newer understanding of them at the same time as we discuss species and take in birding tips. At first, birding may seem like a wasted pastime, but if looked at in the right way, reveals an outstanding world that you never thought existed. I hope to explore this world with you and learn from you in a community where we are all into ornithology, so don't hesitate, meander into the realm of feathered creatures that surround us.
