    When adult birders hear about our Young Birder Camps, we hear the same response over and over—“Boy, I wish they’d had birding camps when I was a kid.” Relive the best of sleepover camps, with a good deal more comfort and a LOT more birds!
  • Our collective birder brains are zeroing in on one thing: spring. It’s coming. We can feel it. Just yesterday, when I took a walk in the park with my daughter, I did not find any definitely migrating species—although the juncos and robins may very well have been migrants—but...
