About Because Birds

In 2013, I created becausebirds.com as a humorous Tumblr blog and then relaunched it as a full blog at the beginning of 2014. It was created to be a platform for my bird-related thoughts and experiences. A place for me to share useful articles about bird photography, recording, and birding technology.

Who am I?

My name is Jeff Mann. I’m an early-30s birder living in San Antonio, Texas. I go birding nearly every weekend and am always on a quest to see or hear a new bird and learn something new!

Up until 2013, I didn’t devote much time to learning about birds. However, that summer, I connected with the local Los Angeles Audubon chapter and began my birding journey.

What am I working on?

I’m working on a few birding-related side projects. Here are a few that are in progress:

Birding.wiki logo
birding.wiki is my newest small project. I am building a personal wiki to document my observations and experiences about different species and locations.
birding.blog is a smaller spin-off blog I’m using for bite-sized birding experiences and quips.

Happy birding!
