Welcome to the online Bird Study Merit Badge course! As Scouts, you enjoy the outdoors and birding is a great way to
enjoy it even more. Bird Study was one of the first merit badges created in 1911, because a true outdoorsman can tell a lot
about what's happening outdoors by observing birds.
Of course, the best way to learn about birds is seeing them in
the wild, but this site will help you learn a bit beforehand, so you can enjoy birding even more! And you'll be able to pass
your requirements even quicker when you do meet with your counselor.
