A lot of work is going on behind the scenes here at Birdwatch World to get some great articles up. There’s a ton of research being done and a lot of typing?! I have to say that it’s exciting to dive so deep into the birdwatching universe and learn about so many things.

There are articles on the way about binoculars, birdwatching at home, bird feeders, bird behavior, and so many other things…

Lockdown Makes It Tricky

Unfortunately, due to the lockdown here in New South Wales, Australia, there is not a great deal of bird watching (beyond the backyard anyway) happening. Aside from the occasional walk on the beach (done for “exercise” but with a camera, of course!) I have not been out to watch or photograph birds for longer than half an hour for quite a while.

I long for a few hours of sitting on the headland in the picture below with my binoculars and my camera, watching and photographing anything that flies past. Soon it will be possible.
