As the pandemic increases outdoor activities, birdwatching's popularity is increasing.
National birding organizations saw interest soar throughout 2020. The Audubon Society reported a 23% spike in website traffic at the start of the pandemic and the number of people using The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s eBird app jumped nearly 40% in 2020. Birdwatching can be done in city, suburb or country and doesn't require special equipment making it ideal for just about everyone.
