Thanks for visiting Bird Watching HQ!


My name is Scott, and I like birds.


I’m not too picky when it comes to birds. I like hiking outside to find them. I also enjoy setting up multiple feeders in my backyard to see what shows up.


I am in my early thirties, live in Ohio and have a beautiful family and great friends.


I have a three-year-old daughter who equally loves dressing in princess’s costumes AND putting on boots to play in our stream and get dirty.  As far as birds go, she does a pretty spot on “tweet tweet,” and cardinals are her favorite bird – mostly because they are red and so is her favorite color.


We also have a newborn son. He likes to eat, smile and look at his mom.


I have been married to my wife for six wonderful years. She doesn’t like birds quite like me (but not many people do!) She does enjoy watching our bird feeder’s, being outside and making fun of me when bird sounds start playing in my car instead of music.

I created Bird Watching HQ for two reasons:


1. It is fun.


I like building websites. And as I mentioned above, I also like birds.


So making a website about birds is a perfect fit.


2. To promote the awesome and fantastic hobby of birding.


I’m pretty sure that birders could save the world if we could organize and pull on the same rope together.


We need more birders and bird watchers. Please help me.


I have a confession.


My favorite birds are penguins, and it’s not even close.


Ever since watching “March of the Penguins” I have been hooked. All of my friends and family know this about me. Penguins have been a part of everything in my life from birthdays to Halloween to my wedding.


Before I die, my goal is to see all 17 species of penguin.


They range from the Galapagos Islands to the coasts of South America and Africa to Antarctica to New Zealand and Australia. I can’t wait to witness the most magnificent flightless bird that has ever roamed the planet.


Sadly, I have never seen a penguin in the wild. I am hoping to change that relatively soon. I hope that this website will help me get there.


I am always on the hunt for penguin news, videos or awesome pictures. Please let me know if you find something worth sharing.
