New company offers bird watchers the necessary tools for the hobby

There's at least one in just about every family. The type of person who will travel miles to catch a glimpse of a rare find through a pair of binoculars or the scope of a telephoto lens just so they can make a much coveted addition to their life list.  We're talking about bird watchers here, and the hobby that may have once been considered a bit on the eccentric side is making serious headway in mainstream society.

Ready to cater to that set of individuals is Ohio-based supplier of bird watching products, Switzer Online Services Incorporated, who recently announced the launch of their company, alongside an online store available at http://www.usbirdwatching.com/.

The website, which utilizes the benefits of e-commerce and international shipping, offers a variety of bird watching products, including binoculars, bird baths, feeders and houses, in addition to educational materials (presumably to help school those who are unsure about the importance of the aforementioned life list).  According to the company, USBirdWatching.com searches through thousands of deals on behalf of the customers, and then provides the customers with direct links to the top picks and best buys, with links to major e-commerce web sites such as Amazon.

Founder and President, Eric Switzer, said, "Bird watching as recreation is one of the fastest growing outdoor activities in the world. It is a wonderful hobby that can be enjoyed by anyone. As an avid bird watcher myself, I'd like to provide people with a place to learn more and invest in their hobby."

Customers can also follow the company on social media links like Twitter and Facebook, where new information related to the hobby, new products, and pictures and videos of birds can be found.  And if your passion for observing our feathered friends still isn't satisfied, the company also has a blog that fills in all the blanks about the products they sell.

Switzer said, "Our goal is not only to increase our number of customers, but to also increase our number of followers. We want our company and Web site to be a destination for bird watchers to gather, discuss and learn."
