Birding Hub recognizes that birds are nature's gift to humans.
Some of us appreciate even just the sight of these creatures in our backyards; some prefer taking photographs of them, and others enjoy caring for these birds and feeding them.
There are many ways to practice birdwatching.
The list includes identifying numerous species, studying bird songs, behavior, feeding habits, nesting, migration, and so on. It's an endless road of possibilities since you need to understand how birds interact with their surrounding environment, including plants, weather, and people.
What many people don't understand is that it takes much more than matching a picture to a bird to identify a bird in the real world. There can be a great deal of caution and wariness among birds, as some of them have no particular interest in being spotted. Therefore, the difficulty of seeing and interpreting the details is even more complicated than the challenge of matching bird details to what you see in pictures.
It might be unnecessary for new birders who are still learning to find their way around a field guide to read about intense courtship displays or how birds care for their young. While these facets of birding may be fascinating, even essential, or fun, these may not be topics beginning birders should be concerned about yet.
That's where this website comes in handy and what it was created for: to help get every reader, especially newbies, on the right foot to find, observe, and study birds in a comprehensive yet straightforward way.
Birding experts are not individuals with heightened senses or more knowledge and experience.
With that in mind, the website does not merely offer identification of specific birds but instead promotes understanding of most challenges in bird identification. It will lead you to recognize common species not only with speed but with accuracy and confidence, and most importantly have fun along the way!
