My other website: Because Birds – a blog for new and modern birders

Since 2014, I have been blogging about birds and the hobby of birdwatching on Because Birds. It started as a Tumblr blog that blew up in popularity. I used Tumblr to share cute and funny bird photos, videos, and memes.

Once I outgrew Tumblr, I created a full WordPress website and began writing guides, reviews, birding summaries, and other experiences.

Here’s a snapshot of Because Birds back in 2014.

Personality quizzes are some of the most popular content on Because Birds, because of course.

If you’d like an overview of getting into the hobby of birding and its various aspects, I wrote a guide incorporating tons of content from over the years.

I hope you enjoy exploring Because Birds.
