Hi everyone, meet Sebastian Casarez! He is a 17-year-old birder and bird educator from Texas. His love for birding started at age 7, and he taught himself about birds by researching the birds he saw in his backyard with different bird guides.

In this video, Sebastian discusses how his love for birding changed his life and became his passion. In 2017, he formed The Texas Blue Jay Project that encourages his community and the state of Texas to explore birds.
