Welcome to Golden Gate Birder!

Welcome to Golden Gate Birder, the new blog of Golden Gate Bird Alliance!

We’re fortunate to live in an area that is rich with both natural beauty and birding activity.  Peregrine Falcons nesting on downtown skyscrapers… struggles to save precious wildlife habitat in our urban environment … sightings of rare birds like last year’s Falcated Duck … and of course the field trips, conservation campaigns, bird art, Big Years and other creative birding initiatives of our members and other local bird lovers.

It’s too much to fit into a monthly or bi-monthly newsletter!

Thus… this blog.

We look forward to bringing you bird-related news, insight and reflection one or two times each week – more often, of course, when there is Big Birding News.

Make sure you don’t miss any of it! Sign up to receive Golden Gate Birder posts by email. (LINK) You’ll get each new entry automatically delivered to your email inbox.

Meanwhile, want to get involved? We’re looking for people to write reviews of birding books, apps and equipment, as well as of their favorite local birding sites.

If you’d like to contribute a review or other writing, please email Communications Director Ilana DeBare at idebare@goldengatebirdalliance.org.

We look forward to celebrating the richness and beauty of Bay Area birding with you in this new format!
