The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Bird Watching
By:

Bird watching continues to grow in popularity among folks of all ages.  The hobby—otherwise known as birding—is an excellent way to enjoy nature and become acquainted with all things winged.

 

Bird Trails and Important Bird Areas
By:

A Bird Trail is more than a trail in the literal sense.  It is a “necklace” of sites, usually linked by a physiographic feature such as a river, that are united by the theme of “great for bird watching!”  Birding Trails are essentially driving routes that help you get from one prime birding spot to the next.
