Mindful Birding Presents BIRD ALERT!, a cartoon adventure from a bird's point of view

Follow the saga of Alfie Bird, a willful male who encounters migration dangers, deceitful birders, surprise windows, birders' lasers, outdoor cats, reverse photography, and predators' accomplices, all as he strives to breed successfully.



Promoting Ethical Birding Guidelines

The Mindful Birding project encourages birders to have gratifying experiences while maintaining the ability of birds to behave naturally. We present ethical birding guidelines from around the world.

The project has three goals:

  1. increase the conservation contributions from America's birdwatchers
  2. increase awareness of ethical birding guidelines
  3. encourage a practice of mindfulness among birders

Our image of a Mindful Birder is one who is aware of:

  1. the needs of wildlife
  2. the role birders can play in advancing bird conservation
  3. the ways he or she may influence the experiences of others
  4. themselves and their personal birding experience
  5. his or her safety and the safety of others nearby

Mindful Birding is a charitable project of the Morrissey Family Foundation with contributions from Brandon Breen.
