Purple Martins are my favorite; as a child my grandpa built me a six-compartment birdhouse, designed specifically for this breed, which sat atop a 20-foot pole in my backyard. Around March 1 they'd flock to the house and stay through August

Ever since Jack Kidd was just a boy, he’s held a distinct fascination for birds; observing them in their natural habitat, drawing them into his yard for feeding, bath time and studying the various species and the regions they descend from.
“Purple Martins are my favorite; as a child my grandpa built me a six-compartment birdhouse, designed specifically for this breed, which sat atop a 20-foot pole in my backyard. Around March 1 they’d flock to the house and stay through August,” Kidd recalls.
Today, Kidd has called upon his personal experience, in-depth knowledge and admiration of birds to develop a blog, http://www.BirdWatchingForYouBlog.com. This interactive tool was designed to provide expertise and guidance about the many facets of birding; from what’s required to become an adequate bird watcher, what to wear, when to go and where to look to tips on how to attract birds into a backyard and what types of birdhouses draw-in what types of birds.
The blog, however, is only half of Kidd’s online presence. Launched in November 2009, http://www.BirdWatchingForYou.com is a Web-store counterpart that presents a haven for birding enthusiasts (avid and beginner) as it distributes the necessary information and supplies to get started. After all, birding is the second most popular hobby in the United States (just behind gardening), he insists.
“My dad, an avid bird watcher, was my greatest inspiration in developing my own passion for birding. He used to take me to the beaches, often with his good friend and renowned author, Roy Bedichek, to observe the birds,” Kidd said.
Shoppers are invited to visit Kidd’s Web site to browse through a vast collection of bird-watching supplies; from binoculars and apparel to bird books and guides, the essentials, and more, are available. Additionally, shoppers will find birdbaths, birdhouses and birdfeeders of traditional and artisan varieties.
Swoop in today to take a look around; customer feedback and questions are welcome.
