Bird watching is FUN! It gives you a great excuse to leave your television behind and venture out into the elements. Need a good reason to head out and go for a walk? Bird watching provides a healthy activity that just about anyone can enjoy. You don’t need good knees like skiing. You don’t even need to be able to venture beyond your backyard. Bird feeders placed on window sills allow individuals with limitations to enjoy birds with little or no effort.
Birding is also the ideal solitary sport. There's a special pleasure in going out alone to bird watch. Your mind settles down. Your senses open up, and all nature seems to become your friend. Birding is a sport of many moods, and it serves the causes of companionship and solitude equally well.
Be warned, however, Birding can be addictive. You may find yourself obsessed with some rare species that may have been reported locally. You may find yourself getting up earlier and earlier to put in a few hours of birding before work. You begin looking at your landscaping in a whole new way as you start planting more bird-friendly plants, installing feeders and birdbaths, and reducing the use of harmful chemicals.
