Are you interested in learning more about birds but don't know where to start?  Have you looked at schedules of local birding field trips but feel like you don't know enough to join in?  Our Birding for Non-Birders adventure will introduce you to the joys and mysteries of birding in a low-key relaxed way.  Our trip will be driven by your interests and go at your pace.  We'll visit easy, nearby birding spots and make sure everyone gets a good look and listen while answering any and all questions you may have.

See what birding is all about, enjoy the scenery and being outdoors, and just have fun with Birding for Non-Birders. 

All of our adventures can be customized--do you want to hike a lot or just a little?  Do you want to see specific birds or just enjoy anything we find?  Are you interested in birding and want help getting started?  Do you have small children?  We can adapt to YOUR needs and this is YOUR adventure! Just add a comment to your booking form.

Depending on our destinations, we may do walking on moderately smooth trails with some rocky sections. Our total distance can be scaled to meet your preferences.
