About Us

Who Is Behind birdingbed.no?
Birdingbed.no is run by two hobby ornithologists, Erik A. Hansen and Kenneth T. Lunna. Erik has been birdwatching periodically his whole life, while Kenneth is relatively new to the game. We both have health issues to deal with and find great pleasure in birds. Our wish is to be able to live off our hobby and at the same time share important and inspiring knowledge with others without cost.

The Purpose of Birdingbed
We want as many as possible realize how satisfying birdwatching is. Not only is this hobby fun, it also has a positive effect on your physical and mental health and creates environmental awareness.
All use of birdingbed.no is free, and you do not need a membership to use the information that is posted. But naturally, there are costs connected to running a web portal. That explains why advertising options are present. This web portal is politically and religiously neutral.

Accommodation
If you find accommodation among the sponsors on the top of the locality pages, we recommend that you use these. Their location is very favourable in the relevant area, and they contribute to a great extend in financing this web portal—making it possible for everyone to have this valuable information for free. If no accommodation is offered among the sponsors, we might not yet have established contacts in the specific area, or maybe there are no good accommodations in close proximity. In these cases, you can use Booking.com by clicking on the link on our page.

Vulnerable Species
Among the variety of species in Norway, some are considered vulnerable, and they are very popular. To protect these, we will not provide detailed information on where these species breed. However, in some cases, you will find information on a larger area in which these species breed or on migration spots that they can be found in.

Pictures
The pictures on our website are in most cases taken in the place at issue. Sometimes, a picture is taken from somewhere else, just representing a common species in the described area. If you have visited Norway and think that some of your pictures should be in the picture galleries, please contact us through tips@birdingbed.no. You should describe where the picture is taken, which species it shows, and who took it. We do not want pictures of birds in captivity. You have to be the owner of the photograph or have the rights to use it. By sending us pictures, you agree that we can use it on our pages or on social media and you confirm that you have the proper rights to the pictures. All pictures are copyrighted. The pictures will be fitted to 1200x900px and credited the photographer.
