    Default Any recommendation for birding for kids online group?

    My daughter who is 12, 7th grade has been very interested in birds. She wants one as a pet, but I am trying to encourage her to get into birding/exploring the local bird population here in our backyard. We have 4 dogs and I do not feel like having a bird as a pet is a good idea in our house.
    I have found some local groups, but of course nothing is going on right now. Any online courses or online forums that you all know about or would recommend?
    She is a complete introvert, but is not shy. Even she has been feeling somewhat bored from being in quarantine, trying to find something she is interested in that she can connect with some other kids.

    DD has been a self-identified 'bird nerd' since age eight. Start with:

    Decent binocs, a field journal and a field guide and/or Merlin app. It's a great time of year to start birding!
    Home schooled two kiddos from a remote location for seven years. DD16 has transitioned to public high school. DS8 tried PS, but likes home schooling better.
