Bird Watching Tips...
By Kathy Burns-Millyard, Fri Dec 9th
Simply sitting and watching birds is a popular hobby around theworld. It's fun and relaxing at the same time.
Many people quite enjoy just watching the birds in their garden,yard, trees and bushes from their front window. And it's evenbetter to actually go out into the wild and watch the birds intheir own natural habitats.
"Natural Habitat" of course usually means going into the woods,or to remote areas. So before going on a outing,be sure you've prepared a little. First and foremost, be sureyou're wearing the appropriate clothes for both the locationyou'll be visiting, and the climate that area is currentlyexperiencing.
If you live in a warm desert area for instance, and you plan togo up a mountain for a day of bird watching, you'll want tofirst find out if there's any snow on the mountain, or whetherit's cold during the daylight hours.
You'll of course also want to be sure you have some food orsnacks, and plenty of water to keep you hydrated.
Binoculars are almost a requirement for too. Theyallow you to get a close up view of any birds, nests, andchicks. Many bird lovers also enjoy having pen or pencil, and anotepad on hand so they can take notes about the birds they'veseen, or sketch them as they're watching.
And of course if you like pictures... you'll want to bring alonga camera :)
Last but not least, it would be helpful to have some sort ofbird identification system or reference available. Whether youcan take it with you into the woods, or you have it hanging athome, these are always quite useful over the long term.
