Nerdy For Birdies is a youth birdwatching club that holds outings in Woodstock, Georgia and Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona areas.
Check our Google Calendar below for upcoming bird outings and classes. Please RSVP to events using our Google Doc form or Facebook event, so that we know how many nerdy birders will be attending and so we can email you a reminder with meeting location details. Most of our outings are FREE, some of the classes may require a fee (so please read all the event details). Some of the events on our calendar are not hosted by us and are birding events we wanted to help spread the word about in case your nerdy birder is looking for more birding and bird learning fun.
About Nerdy For Birdies:
Nerdy For Birdies was created to encourage more youth to get excited about the hobby of birdwatching. My son Rowyn aka NinjaBirder, developed a love for birding shortly after moving to Arizona in the Summer of 2018. I wanted to encourage his love for his new hobby so I began to take him to monthly bird walks. We quickly noticed that he was the only youth birder present at most of the bird walks and events we attended. In August 2019 we attended our first birding festival in Tucson and decided it was time to find a way to introduce more youth to this fun and exciting hobby. And so Nerdy For Birdies was born.
If you have questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 678-457-0802.
Nerdy For Birdies Youth Birding Club is FREE and open to all ages.
At each bird club meeting, we will not only go birding, but we will also have a hands on activity and learn about a new bird each month. Each participating child will receive a bird journal, and a birdsleuth explorers guidebook. (click on the links below to view event details and to rsvp)
If you would like to help us keep this club FREE we are seeking donations to help us cover the cost of materials, and purchase some binoculars that we can have available for children to borrow. Click the link below to make a donation, and select Nerdy For Birdies from the drop down options.
Check out the video we made for International Migratory Bird Day 2020 by clicking the button below.
World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is an annual awareness-raising campaign highlighting the need for the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats. It has a global outreach and is an effective tool to help raise global awareness of the threats faced by migratory birds, their ecological importance, and the need for international cooperation to conserve them.
Every year people around the world take action and organize public events such as bird festivals, education programs, exhibitions and bird-watching excursions to celebrate WMBD. All these activities can also be undertaken at any time on the year because that countries or regions observing the peak of migrations at different times, but the main days for the international celebrations on the second Saturday in May and in October.
After watching a documentary about the CBC Ninja Birder was inspired to get involved and in 2020 Nerdy For Birdies and Maricopa County Parks Master Naturalists ran the first CBC circle for the Phoenix Metro area in over 100 years (Phoenix and the surrounding cities have not been counted since the early 1900).
If you would like to help us in 2023 please click the "email list" button below and complete the form. We plan to offer several trainings in Fall 2023. By signing up for this email list you are agreeing to receive information about the 2023 CBC for Phoenix and the upcoming trainings.
