They are the music, decoration, and character of every terrestrial habitat on the planet and have been around since the dinosaurs. They are the witnesses and ambassadors of the awesome power of nature. The wide availability of good, cheap optics has opened their world to us for the last few decades.

We are in a day-and-age during which more bird species are threatened with extinction than ever before. The Wild Birds!
