Bird Watching Journal


Whether you've started your own Family Bird Watching Club or you just enjoy observing your feathered friends while they flit around your yard, you'll want a way to record the birds you see. You can record your frequent visitors and make note of those times when you see a bird you don't normally see. Or you can take it along on a trip and record the birds you find that are different than the ones you normally see at home. There are so many ways to use a Bird Watching Journal.

You can certainly use a plain notebook for your Bird Watching Journal. But, wouldn't it be fun to have a fun, pretty, and personalized Bird Watching Journal? Of course it would! Let's get started.

Family Bird Watching Club


Does your family have any shared interest or hobbies? Do you all love to watch and play baseball? Or maybe hiking is your thing? Or do you spend the winter skiing and snowboarding? Whatever it is, a shared hobby is a great way to spend quality time together.

If you don't already have a shared interest, have you thought about trying something new together? It doesn't have to be complicated and it doesn't have to be expensive. I've got a crazy idea for you. Start a Family Bird Watching Club.

I know what you're thinking. "Isn't that something only old people do?"

Hear me out. Why is bird watching a good idea? It's simple. You may already have all the supplies you need. You can do it all over the world all year round. It gets the family outside enjoying nature. You can plan fun trips around this hobby. Anyone at any age can do it. Plus... birds are just plain fun.
