We started this website because we want to share tips and information to help encourage more people to get into birding. Our goal is to make birding more accessible for all. We hope you enjoy exploring the site and that it helps you on your birding adventures!

Our Story

Birding Space started with a pair of passionate birders looking to make an impact. United by a shared love of birds and a drive to help others better enjoy our birds and nature in general, we launched this digital hub in 2023. What began as a bird blog hobby has evolved into a growing, comprehensive resource serving birders at all experience levels with the ID guides, gear guides, hotspot recommendations, and more. As our platform grows, so does our dedication to informing, inspiring, and delighting fellow bird lovers worldwide.

Our Mission

Birding Space exists to make the joys of birding more engaging, accessible and informative for enthusiasts everywhere. We provide the practical resources – from optimal binocular recommendations to region-specific birding guides – that allow people at every skill level to better observe, understand, and protect birds. Our platform aims to educate on bird ecology while building an inclusive space for appreciating the beauty, behaviors, and benefits of the birds around us. Through personalized recommendations, ever-growing content libraries, and community, we hope to increase diversity in birding participation. Our ultimate goal is simpler: share our passion so more people can experience the sense of wonder that comes from watching our planet’s birdlife.
