Birds connect us to nature in unique ways. Birds are readily accessible everywhere and require no equipment or specialized knowledge to enjoy. People of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy the pleasures of bird watching in urban, suburban, and rural areas, connecting us to the natural world in a tangible way. When bird populations thrive, so do the ecosystems that people depend upon for a healthy quality of life.
