Birding with many of the new electronic gadgets, apps, and citizen science websites like eBird is not just a new fad: it is a great way to learn, participate in citizen science, and enhance your enjoyment of birds.

From great new apps like Merlin for bird ID to eBird to enter bird sightings —to other great apps and sites like Hummingbirds@Home, BirdJam, BirdSpot, and more - the opportunities to enhance the modern e-birding trip are endless!

Originally from small-town South Dakota, Jason "the Birdnerd" St. Sauver has spent the last 10 years educating and birding across the country. Most recently, Jason spent 7 years with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service educating kids and performing bird surveys in the forests of New England, the beaches of Cape Cod, or the salt flats of northern Utah. He is the Interim Director and Education Manager for the Mitchell Lake Audubon Center. He is thrilled to be birding and educatin' for y'all in his new state of Texas!
