About Because Birds

Because Birds started as a Tumblr blog and then relaunched as a full blog at the beginning of 2014. This website was created to be an outlet for any bird-related thoughts and experiences 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 am I?

My name is Jeffrey 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 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 Audubon chapter and started my birding journey.

Happy birding!
