Birdwatcher Christian Cooper will now have his show on the National Geographic Channel entitled “Extraordinary Birder.” The TV network says that Cooper’s show will take viewers on a trip through the “wild, wonderful, and unpredictable world of birds” in the US. He does everything it takes to learn about this awesome feathery species. Cooper, 59, said National Geographic approached him about a series a year and a half ago. He said, “I was all in.” “I love spreading the gospel of birding.” In a news story, National Geographic said that the first episode will air in 2023.

Cooper posted on Facebook his excitement last week. “Birding has exploded in popularity recently, and I’m looking forward to putting a spotlight on these amazing creatures and the extraordinary birders who love them and work to protect them!” he added. Birding, or birdwatching, is the observation of birds for leisure or as part of a citizen science activity. A person interested in birdwatching has the choice of utilizing their sight, devices such as binoculars or a telescope, listening for bird sounds, or viewing public webcams to observe birds.
