Birdwatching: a relaxing and environmentally friendly pastime

There are many different types of birds, which is what makes birdwatching fun.

Plus, you can do it whether you are at home or on holiday.

But the beneficial part of bird watching is doing it from home.

  • Provide bird habitats: find out about the types of birds in your area, then build habitats to attract them to your area so you can watch them. The more accurate and secure the habitats, the better for the birds and the environment.
  • Provide healthy food: Understand the types of food that are good for the birds you want to attract. Don’t give them “junk” food because that is not good for them. Feed them food that is as natural as possible, such as planting food for them rather than using store-bought food.
  • Create a water feature: Birds love to bathe and splash in water. Provide the right kind of aquatic environment. Keep the water clean and natural so that bacteria and insects do not invade. When creating a “bird bath”, avoid filling it with chlorinated water from your hose. Instead, use rainwater.
  • Get good binoculars: you don’t want to intrude on your birds’ environment; besides, they’ll get scared and fly away anyway. Instead, get good binoculars so you can see them from further away and not disturb them.
  • Make your home as green as possible: so that there is nothing on your property that could accidentally make a bird sick (or worse, kill it), practice safe, green landscaping for your entire yard and plants.
  • Report: When you are birding, it’s a great idea to take notes on what you see. There are institutions that would love to consider your notes with their other research. One place you can send information to is Birders’ Exchange. Each place wants different information, but once you get started, you will learn how you can help with research.

  • Learn about conservation: It is important for any serious birder to learn about the importance of conservation. You can learn more about conservation and how the environment affects birds through the Audubon Society. Conservation is imperative for the lives of birds, humans and all animals.

  • Donate: If you have additional funds, consider finding a bird-related charity to donate to so that more research and conservation efforts for birds can be sustained. We need birds because they eat insects, help with pollination and clean up dead animals to prevent disease.

How to be recognized in your community

Bird watching can be environmentally friendly and relaxing, but you must be aware of your surroundings.

Don’t litter.

Don’t touch a bird’s habitat.

Instead of your vehicle, take your bicycle birding to avoid causing more pollution to the environment.
