Why watch birds? Well, why explore the world? Why walk through nature?
Birds, those flighty, fanciful creatures of the sky. They are as beautiful and fascinating as they are hard to spot. One moment there, and with a flap, never to be seen again. Experienced ‘birders’, beginner birdwatchers, and general nature lovers are pulled to birdwatching for the experience of being fully immersed in nature while seeking to spot creatures that so few have ever taken the time to see.
To birdwatch is to seek the pure joy of discovery. From Bald Eagles and Red-Tailed Hawks to Hummingbirds and Woodpeckers and everything in between, there are thousands of unique species of birds to see. Our National Parks and protected lands provide a unique opportunity to catch a glimpse of these rare birds in their natural habitat.
