About Two-Fisted Birdwatcher

Two-Fisted Birdwatcher started in 2009. Its originators wanted to debunk old-fashioned stereotypes about bird watching and birders. This is explained in detail on our home page.

Over time, the writing accumulated quickly. Posts, stories and articles were added often. In a few years, what started as a blog became an online magazine.

And its point seems to have been made, its voice joining with other voices delivering the same message: Bird watching is an action-oriented worldwide activity involving pretty cool people.

It is, in fact, “two-fisted.” Those words describe ruggedness, and also the way you hold binoculars in your mitts.

The pace of adding new items has slowed. After all, there are enough words here now to make a doorstop-sized book if they were assembled into pages.

And when an occasional new post has been added, it’s been so modest that we felt it shouldn’t warrant the fanfare of an email, or trumpeting on social media.

So we’ve been kinda quiet.

If you’re new to our site, we welcome you, and invite you to explore. There’s a lot to discover, just as there’s a lot to discover when you hike into a new piece of wild country with woods, meadows and waterways.

You’ll find birds. We hope you’ll also find some entertainment.

Everyone who has worked on Two-Fisted Birdwatcher would like to thank you for visiting this page, and for exploring our site.

We wish you good birding and good reading.
