Bird Watching Resources: Birdwatching Backpack

Resources and tips for enjoying Bird Watching in the Quad Cities.

Birding Backpack

Birds have always fascinated humans. They are common and yet extraordinary. Many have brilliantly colored feathers, or beautiful songs and, maybe most of all, they can fly (with a few exceptions!) Bird watching can become a passionate (and competitive!) hobby, or simply enjoyed by anyone. A walk through the park becomes richer when you hear and observe birds! Check out one of our Birding Backpacks to help you get started or continue your birdwatching adventure.
