Welcome to watchingthebirds.com

Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Karen. I have been a bird enthusiast for many years. I have spent many years watching, admiring, and researching birds. On this site, you can find information on a variety of birds and articles about different aspects of their behavior.

I have created this site for the purpose of sharing my love and knowledge about birds. I will venture to say you have at least one feeder in your yard that brings a variety of birds. Watching the birds brings joy, entertainment, peace (almost meditative), and sometimes laughter.

But inevitably watching also brings questions: what type of bird is that?, What does a certain bird eat? Where do they sleep? What do they do during storms?.

My goal is to provide well-researched and informative articles to answer questions you may have about birds. So enjoy the world of watching the birds.
