Always Be Birdin’
Birds are extremely awesome. But birding can be intimidating and difficult. Always Be Birdin’ aims to change the narrative of birding. How we bird, where we bird and who is birding. Join me as I go out into the field with BIPOC birding experts, novice baby birders like myself and nature enthusiasts to do some chaotic, goofy birding while dropping a knowledge bomb or two to show that no matter what, you can Always Be Birdin’.
