Whether you're a hardcore twitcher, a knowledgeable birder, a lover of birds or you just want to learn more about birds then this studio is for you! In the comments you can discuss anything that is bird related. We talk about birding trips, rare birds spotted in your area, life lists, bird-related debates, and bird surveying/ringing. If you would like to curate, or you have a question (it can be anything from bird behavior to the best birding binoculars to buy), please ask in the comments! :)
*Nothing about killing birds
*Be kind (no cyber bullying)
*Use language that is appropriate to all ages
*Please only add bird-related projects,and no flappy bird /angry bird unless an educational twist is added.
*Managers can invite who they want, but NOT promote people (apart from the STO team: @peregrinefalcon1, @Tilikum10, @Birdmusic, @theepicgreek, @dreamingofstars and @Ananda90).
We will change the picture every month and that picture will be the bird of the month, this month it's the Resplendent Quetzal!
December is a great time to see many winter birds, like the Bohemian Waxwing or the Snow Bunting! Bird feeders can attract many birds as well. If birds migrate to your location, then it's also a great time for birding. No matter what season, you can always find birds!

Link to Bird of the Month Discussion:
~In 2016, the thought-to be-extinct blue-eyed ground dove was rediscovered!! Since the 1930s,
they were thought to be extinct!
There are still very few, so save them!!!
~In 2016 the Spix's Macaw a bird that was thought to be extinct in the wild, was possibly rediscovered. Its call was heard and a glimpse of a similar bird was seen. It is still not proven if it was a Spix's macaw.
~In 2016, the black-throated piping-guan was reintroduced to the Atlantic forest in Brazil.
~Drop what your doing and grab your binoculars, there are rare birds everywhere! There is a NORTHERN GANNET in Half Moon Bay!
