What's up with that name, Beary Birding?

I seem to receive this question a lot, so I figured I'd answer it once and for all: in addition to birds, I like bears. In order to resonate with my main target audience, kids and teenagers, I decided that it would be best not to sound too formal. I found a happy medium at Beary Birding!

P.S. It's meant to be pronounce Beary as in Bear-y, but you may pronounce it however you would like.
