Join a Local Bird Watching Group

For fun, we have taken up bird watching and I recently signed up online with a newsletter from a group called BirdYak through the Audubon society. They get together and go on outings to various areas around here to watch and identify the many species of birds that live here year round and those who migrate through the area too.

This is a huge birding area and we are learning to identify some of these beautiful and varied birds, from eagles to hummingbirds, great blue herons, and pelicans, wood ducks, teals, sandpipers, sand cranes, and so much more. We identified a western tanager in our back yard and the next day the newspaper had a picture of one. I think someone in BirdYak did that. It was great!

The national February backyard bird count is coming soon! This would be a great time to participate in birdwatching and help a good cause: counting the number of birds you see out your window and getting a good demographic. Contact your local Audubon or birdwatchers group.
