Welcome to Bird Watching HQ!


My name is Scott, and however you made it to my site, I’m glad you’re here.


If you are looking for proven and effective ways to attract birds and wildlife to your backyard, then you have come to the right place!


I am slowly transforming our one-acre urban backyard in Ohio into a place that birds want to visit. My goal is to have 100 different bird species on my “Yard List” (Which is how many birds that I’ve observed in my backyard).


Please know that I am not an expert!


But I am someone who is passionate about bringing more nature into my backyard and was frustrated by the lack of consolidated information that could be found online.


I have a long way to go, but I am learning an incredible amount every day, which serves as the basis for what typically gets shared and written about on Bird Watching HQ.


Currently, there are over 100 articles available to read, and the database is growing each month.


I know that is a lot of information and it’s hard to know where to start. Keep reading, and I will offer a few of the most popular categories.

Here is my promise regarding EVERY article you will find on Bird Watching HQ:


To the best of my knowledge and ability, every post will be as complete and thorough as possible.


I sincerely believe in quality, not quantity. A pet peeve of mine are websites that post sub-par content continuously just to attract clicks.


I am only able to produce about three new articles per month. Each one averages over 2,000 words and takes many hours to research, experiment, write, edit, etc.


My worst fear is you read one of my posts and say “Wow, Scott must have been in a rush for this one,” or you leave feeling dissatisfied and you need to do additional research.


Seriously, if you feel anything on Bird Watching HQ is lacking value, please tell me!!!
