Birding is a form of wildlife observation in which the observation of birds is a recreational activity. Depending on the level of commitment or intensity of watching birds, you’ll likely receive or give yourself the title of bird watcher or birder. In contrast, ornithology would not be defined as a recreational activity. An ornithologist, unlike a bird-watcher, is a person who engages in the study of birds using scientific methods. Whatever title given, why has this type of engagement with our natural world become so popular over the past decade? What connects us to these beautifully feathered creatures? Well, whether we notice them or not, birds are everywhere!

Join us as Jason Ward takes you on a journey of where his love for birds and wildlife began. He never imagined he would be where he is today, but he always had a passion to learn more about the natural world around him. During this EPN Breakfast program, you’ll learn about his adventures, what he learned, how it changed him personally and professionally, as well as tips you can take away to get you started on your own birding voyage.
