This article goes into the hobby of bird watching and what you need to get the best experience from this.
The article begins with telling us how the first sign of spring is never a silly groundhog, but of course...the BIRDS! As soon as you hear the birds singing you know the springs on it's way. And with so many birds out there, there's always people who enjoy bird watching. To get started you'll need to have binoculars or some kind of scopes to spot the birds, as well as a guidebook to identify them. Find a quiet, isolated place in the woods and wait. Patience is key. Know what you're looking for and what kind of birds live which kinds of habitats. It's not a hobby for everyone but to those patient enough and who love nature, it's rewarding.
