Birdwatching or birding is the observation of birds as a recreational activity. It can be done with the naked eye, through a visual enhancement device like binoculars and telescopes, or by listening for bird sounds
Watching birds can take on many different forms. It’s whatever you want to make of it. For most people it is a relaxing pastime which allows them to head out into the fresh air and visit places they may not usually go. Some enjoy the freedom of solitude it can provide while others see it as a social experience, meeting with people who share a common interest. For others it is the lure of the chase which ignites their passion, striving to see as many different species as they can. Some birdwatchers become engrossed in the birds’ ecology, seeing it as an opportunity to learn. Still others look upon birds as environmental indicators and use them to understand how the natural world is faring.
Whatever drives birdwatchers, almost all agree — they like watching birds to appreciate their beauty and freedom, and because it’s enjoyable.
