Hey i am Arif
I have a love for wildlife and in particular birds as they are so easy to get a close look at. I love to talk about birds, research them, go birding, birdwatch in my backyard and keep a few as pets. I wanted to share this love of birds with everyone so you can also appreciate these fascinating creatures.

I attend bird walks and talks whenever I get the chance so that I can learn more from the experts. There is always something new to learn or see with birding.

After studying a natural sciences degree I then entered the corporate world working for online travel companies. We now live in a forest and near a beach and I have not looked back since. You can usually find me out paddleboarding or kayaking or hiking through the forest, always with some binoculars!

I am here to help you find all the information you need about bird identification, birding tips, backyard bird watching, bird facts with guides, and free printables.
