Today, I am thrilled to welcome you to the redesigned BirdWatchingDaily.com! It features a new, fresher look, with larger photos and typography.
We’re retaining the vast majority of the content — more than 1,900 articles and 17,500 reader-submitted photos. The stories are organized in a more user-friendly way. For example, across the top navigation bar, you can quickly locate articles about birding gear and products, birding locations and travel, news, photography, and other topics.
The site continues to feature a calendar of upcoming birding festivals and events; if you’re involved in a festival and don’t see it listed, please submit information about it through our submission form, and we’ll post it right away.
If you spend time on the site, it should be clear that we cover the broad interests of birdwatchers: from feeding and attracting tips to conservation and science news. We also offer bird-identification info, but it’s not what you’ll get from lots of other sites. Certainly, other websites present ID info similar to what is available in printed or app-based field guides, and believe me, I’m happy they’re out there.
Kenn and David are both authors of outstanding field guides and other books — and longtime contributing editors for BirdWatching. Their columns are among the most popular parts of the magazine, so I’m delighted to present many of their past articles in an easy-to-navigate format on our updated site.
I hope you like the improvements to BirdWatchingDaily. Our goal with the website and BirdWatching magazine is help you become a better birder. In my experience, everyone who birds, from beginners to experts, wants to improve their skills and broaden their knowledge of birds and the natural world. It is an honor to help facilitate that for as many people as we can.
Please take a look around the site and let me know what you think.
