Birding or bird watching – it’s good for the soul. With millions of birders here in North America alone, it is one of the fastest-growing pastimes of folks during all twelve months of the season.
Much as any other hobby, there is a slight learning curve for birding and those exposed to it can attest to the addicting qualities that bird watching instills in all of us.
For the first-time birder, there is much to think about. Before heading out and randomly selecting a feeder and generic seed, we always recommend a quick habitat assessment around your yard. Just as we always suggest before heading out into the field, look for habitat first and then you are sure to find birds.
