Birding--It's fun!

This week during a meeting on nature-based tourism, our group got to take a two hour guided birding trip.  The guide shown on the right pointed out the birds and we each looked through binoculars to see the field markings of the birds. Listening to their sounds was fun too.

We walked two miles and witnessed lots of nature.  She metnioned to us that there are numerous field guides that one can carry into the woods to use to identify birds and that there are now phone apps too.

Landowners with wooded areas might want to consider earning supplemental income by offering birding trips. While advanced birders might be looking for special and rare birds most of us are novices and would enjoy seeing and identifying any bird.
