THE NATURE LOVER'S SPORT




mt.bluebird

When I was a teenager, I thought a birdwatcher was a nerdy looking guy: skinny, with slicked back hair; horned rimmed glasses, and wearing a plaid suit. You know- someone to laugh at on tv sitcoms! Boy, was I ever wrong. As I grew older, and my love of nature drew me to the parks and forests; I found that I was one!

Yes, I am a birdwatcher; and I love it very much. I can't imagine being out in nature without the sounds of birds. Their beautiful songs are a melody as sweet as anything I have ever heard. Experience it for yourself! You can hear the songs of many different North American birds at this site from the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center. You can also see photographs of a lot of these birds at the same site.

At THIS SITE you can find a Species List with Relative Abundance Maps, showing where these birds can be found.

Once you you start watching birds, you will want to keep a list of the ones you have seen. This is called a life-list. You will add to this list each time you identify a species you have never seen before. I have been keeping MY LIFE LIST since 1982. The only other things you really need are a pair of binoculars and a field guide- a book that will help you identify your new friends. I recommend the Peterson Field Guide. Depending on where you live, you can get either the East or West of the Rockies version.

Soon, going out to see the birds won't be enough- you will want the birds to come and see you! The best way for that to happen is to put a bird feeder in your yard. Put it where you can see it from a window you look out of often and you will get hours of enjoyment watching "your" birds. If you can't devote the time, energy or funds to your own back-yard feeder, the next best thing is-


The WBU Live Bird Feeder Camera!

The next time you see one of our feathered friends, take a good look at it- it may be a bird you have never seen before. When you're ready to move up from back-yard birding, a great way to become a novice watcher is to go to a local or National Park near you; and go on a "bird walk" with one of their naturalists. He or she will give you some hints on how to spot birds in their natural habitat, and also show you what characteristics to look for when identifying a bird. You'll be spotting your first rare bird before you know it. But for now, just get yourself a field guide and start writing down the birds you see. Before you know it.... you will be a bird watcher too!
