Bird Watching

Here are some reasons why people love bird watching and why you should try it:

Apprecation for Nature and the world around us, spending time in the great outdoors, soaking up vitamin D from the sun, breathe fresh air and commune with animals.

It dosent cost anything!

Patience

Bird watching requires plenty of study to get familarized with types of birds and where they are found, then time to travel to the location.  Plenty of situations in the real world require us to be patient.

Sense of Community:

They say birds of a feather flock together, so why not participate in socialising in like minded individuals.

Whether it is in your backyard or while hiking through the woods Bird watching is a hobby that can be enjoyed by anyone,
