Bird Watching As Hobby and the Little Things You Can Do for Them

By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | December 15th 2011 | Views:

Bird watching is a hobby that not many know about. If at all they did it was never on their volition; often they get initiated either because someone was involved in this exciting hobby, or they saw someone do it on TV. My own inspiration came from my uncle who was a fervent bird watcher himself. The pleasure one derives from bird watching can be immense and to experience that you will need patience and perseverance; it is not for the restless. Remember birds are a shy lot and seldom come close to human habitat, especially the rare ones you see in the wild. Before you venture out into the wild to see them, you can try the Dish TV to locate a couple of channels that specialize in wild life, just as I did a few years before.

Watching birds is a pleasure that not everyone will be able to experience. To understand them better try to get a little knowledgeable about them. The very act of perusing their habitat, habits, culinary habits, breeding behavior…can have a pleasant effect upon you. Remember that bird watchers generally do not like to see them trapped into cages and kept at home. In fact it can leave them disturbed to see them in captivity. If you can enjoy bird watching, why not share the same pleasure with some of your friends? By sharing your hobby with others, you will be reinforcing your friendship; you will get to see them more often, discuss about, and why not consider having a bird watchers club at the place you live?

Indiscriminate felling of trees, the natural habitat for birds, has made many species, some of them very exotic, go extinct.

As an ardent bird watcher that you soon will become, it will also be your duty to educate others upon the importance to preserve some of god’s creations from disappearing on this planet. If you can find enough time, why not become an activist fighting for the bird’s right? Why not even convince legislators to make laws that will make bird hunting illegal? After all, these poor souls deserve your help. Don’t they deserve your help? The best way you can do of course is to convince as many of your friends as possible to become bird watchers.

Why not get some birds to be your regular visitors to your home? All that you need to do is find some food they did like, or if you are inclined, why not keep a trough full of water on a hot summer day, so they can quench their thirst. They did really be thankful to you. If you thought that bird food is expensive, you are mistaken. Even a small quantity of the food that we waste without a second thought can feed dozens of birds if not hundreds. The more enthusiastic bird watchers can even think in terms having small pigeon hole like homes for the birds on their roof tops. But more important see that they don’t get caught by predators, like for example the pet cat or dog you keep at home.

One of the reasons why birds get killed are manmade structures like Mylar strips, crop netting, screens that are easy traps for the birds. Minimize their use if you can, and find an alternate; it will do well for birds just as they will for humans. Birds, like humans can go sick when they eat poisoned food, and more so than humans. Their digestive system is very fragile; even a small quantity of the toxics that we dispose into the open, the fertilizers and pesticides we use on the field can substantially destroy bird population around the place you live.
