Old school birding vs birding in the digital age.
Don’t listen to the old school
to in for of birding! You don’t need a field guide, you don’t need a mentor to guide you and you don’t even need binoculars to start birding. You just need a point and shoot camera and an internet connection to get started. Everything else is secondary and comes later. Chances are that you already have a digital camera and access to internet, so you can get started right away. What are you waiting for? Just do it.
Everything is right there at your fingertips, but it is not yet organized for the 21st century. Pick up any book, read any blog post, check out any video on Youtube about birdwatching for beginners, and they all repeat the same mantra from yesterdays.

Birding has never been cooler than it is today. It is certainly not a hobby for nerds, but one for active people who enjoy nature and outdoors and want to share their passion with others. Birding today compares less with trainspotting and stamp collecting, but more like the fine subtleties of wine-tasting and photo-hunting.

Eventually, we shall also talk about the same mantra, but then you are already a birder and you probably want to step up a pinhole.
