By April 22, 2013

Follow me on:

While I like to start each week answering a reader's question, today is Earth Day and a great opportunity for us all to ask ourselves a question...

"As birders, are we doing enough to protect the Earth?"

Because birding is an outdoor, nature-centered hobby, many birders automatically assume it's an environmentally-friendly one as well. But just how Earth-friendly your birding is depends on your behavior, in the field and everywhere else in your life. These tips can help:

If you want to do even more that will directly benefit the birds, consider donating to a wild bird rescue or organizing a fundraiser to support bird conservation. Happy Earth Day!
