WHY BIRD WATCH?? Feeding birds is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get - Forrest Gump It's surprisingly similar to collecting Pokémon in real life. You're not literally catching them of course, but many people challenge themselves to see as many different species as they can, and sometimes keep a list of when and where they saw their first bird of each species. Identifying birds is a skill that's rewarding to learn, and birdwatching trips are exciting because you never know what you'll see! Here at home it's also nice to watch the birds for people of all ages!
