More about Justin, Our Founder

Hey there!

I’m Justin Chia, and I hail from Singapore, a city-state country in Asia. Singapore is a tropical country and is great for spotting a surprising variety of birds all year-round, especially in the bird migration months.

I started getting into birding while I was pursuing a Bachelor’s in biological sciences, which helped me better understand the biology and beauty of birds!

The park outside my window

I first started birding as a hobby when I was looking out the window at the park beside my apartment. There were SO many birds calling and flying around just outside my house!

I was amazed that how birds were like real-life pokemon where we get the same thrill when we ‘catch’ a rare bird. And the rest is history!

Here’s how dead simple I started: I grabbed my binoculars and took some pictures with my smartphone of a Crested Goshawk outside my college dorm. There’s no shame in being a beginner!

I’ve made many mistakes along the way and got frustrated in many instances along the way. Through this blog, I hope to promote birding and provide all the advice that I can!

There’s really no shame in being a beginner, considering how I started.

So come! Let’s grow in our birding knowledge and skills together!
