Hello and welcome to Backyard Birding! My name is Danielle and I am a beginner birder and nature enthusiast. I wanted to find a way to connect to my community, be outside and learn something new. This was my inspiration to become more of an avid birder as well as spend time with my “bird-nerd” husband. As a native Coloradan I have been lucky to have the Rocky Mountains as my backyard. I currently attend the University of Colorado Denver, pursuing a Biology degree and aspirations of applying to physical therapy school.

This blog is intended to explore the wonderful world of birds and where to find them. I will find educational information to share with the readers as well as how to become a backyard birder. I welcome you all to join me on my journey as a beginner birder and discovery of nature.
