Urban birdwatching has always been rooted in accessibility. No matter where you live, you can be an urban birdwatcher.

We love introducing kids to new ways to enjoy their immediate environments. For kids in urban areas, that can sometimes feel challenging. Urban birdwatching is an easy activity to open their eyes to the natural environment around them and how incredible birds are at making homes wherever they land.
