About

Welcome to BirdWatchingBuzz!

Our site dedicated to all things related to bird-watching! We are here to provide you with the best advice regarding birds in general, ornithology, ways to attract birds into your garden, and nature in general.

We’ve been studying birds and their habits for 13 years, both in their natural habitats and in enclosed, protected areas such as the zoos. All of our accumulated knowledge is at your disposal, together with our unbridled fascination with our avian friends, both big and small.

If you’re looking for a nice place to learn about your favorite type of bird without being bombarded by an avalanche of dull, dry facts, this is the right place for you!

James Morgan

James Morgan is a biologist, the graduate of California State University, Los Angeles. Even as a child, he was fascinated by birds, their ability to fly and survive even in the harshest of environments. Not only does he collect all knowledge of birds in terms of biology and zoology, but he also loves exploring the cultural impact the birds have on human civilization and their presence in myths and stories worldwide.

Other than his interest in birds, James’s attention is focused on his many hobbies, namely table top games. He is a passionate player of Dungeons and Dragons tabletop role-playing game, and often plays as a druid – even in a fantasy world he stays connected with the natural world.

“Birds are fantastic creatures, with such a great presence in every culture around the globe, and are one of the crucial elements of the equilibrium of all land-based ecosystems. They are an inspiration, and a living treasure of our planet.” James Morgan

Torrie Reed

Just like her partner (both on the site and in life), Torrie Reed is a biologist who graduated in the same class as her long-time partner James. Being a bird enthusiast herself, she dedicated herself to studying them, and during her studies on CLU, she met James, and they immediately hit it off.

Today, Torrie is a proud co-founder of BirdWatchingBuzz, focused on the particularities of how certain bird types adapt to living in urban areas and is a passionate animal rights activist. Inspired by the myriad of different melodious bird calls, she dabbled into music in her early days, in time becoming an accomplished flutist. And to her partner’s dismay, she’s a science-fiction fan in love with the Doctor Who TV show.

“We believe that learning about birds and animals in general need not be a boring and tedious activity, so we try our best to write about them in simple, yet engaging and relevant terms, and thus spread our love of birds to the wider community.” Torrie Reed

Our thoughts

We are passionate about our work and interests and see this site as an ideal way to share our knowledge with the rest of the bird-loving community, but we also try to offer answers to broader biology-related questions.
