I am Dr. Mya-Rose Craig.

I am a 21-year-old prominent British-Bangladeshi ornithologist, environmentalist, diversity activist as well as an author, speaker and broadcaster. At age 11 I started the popular blog Birdgirl, and at age 17 I became the youngest person to see half of the birds in the world.

My Story

‘Lyrical, poignant and insightful.’
Margaret Atwood

This is my story; a journey defined by my love for these extraordinary creatures. Because large or small, brown, patterned or jewelled, there is something about birds that makes us, even for just moments at a time, lift our eyes away from our lives and up to the skies.

Media Coverage


At the age of 11 I started the popular blog Birdgirl, where I’ve been documenting my story so far by writing articles about birding, the environment, books and my general life.
