About Because Birds

Because Birds started as a Tumblr blog then relaunched as a full-blown standard blog at the beginning of 2014. This website was created to be an outlet for any bird-related ramblings I have, as well as a place for me to share useful articles about bird photography, birding in the digital age, and fun things for bird lovers in general.

Who are you?

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

Until 2013, I didn’t devote much time to learning more about birds. That summer, I looked on Meetup.com, found some birding groups, went on my first bird walk, connected with the local Audubon, and started going bird crazy.

If you need to contact me, you can do so via any of our social networks, or by email to jeff [at] becausebirds [.com].

Happy birding!
