Simply observing birds and learning to identify them is a rewarding way to connect with the natural world.

You can start by borrowing a bird guide from your library, joining an outing with your local naturalist club, putting up bird feeders (read our tips on keeping feeder birds healthy) or participating in one of our entry-level Citizen Science programs such as the Great Backyard Bird Count or Project FeederWatch. You could also check out our New to Birding webpage, sample one of our online courses, and download the free Merlin Bird ID App.

If you are already fully immersed in the world of birds, try and find opportunities to share your love of birds and help make birds and birding more accessible to others in your community. Anyone can be a bird champion!
