Teens hone their birding skills as part of a nature camp.

In New York City, one camper got hooked on a Red-bellied Woodpecker, like this one.

Another camper says: When I went to my first birding camp, I knew nothing and I just liked looking at birds... then I started learning about all the taxonomy, and I think it's really enhanced what I know about science.

These campers revel in the opportunity to spend time with their peers while immersed in nature.
