Birding can be?

The power of observation applies to most activities and none more so than birding.  Whether you spend you time scouting different locations, sitting in a local park, from a balcony, or your car seat.  They all offer an opportunity to observe our winged friends.  Whatever birds frequent your area or the unexpected visitor shows up, try to set aside a little time to enjoy the moment of seeing, hearing and observing how it interacts in its environment.  You can make mental notes, or take notes.

Birding can be fun and interesting too!  It can be whatever you want it to be.  Enjoy!

I count birds for the Cornell Feeder Watch program each winter and that has forced me to more observant of the diversity of similar species. I still have trouble with some of them! Very nice photos!

Exceptional shots! Perfect focus on the white breasted nuthatch with the nut in his mouth. This post reminds me that I need to fill up my feeders again. Maybe that's why I haven't seen many birds lately. :/

That fist shot is amazing. It's fun once you start recognizing not only the species but the individuals who frequent the yard.

In the first photo the bird holds food in its beak like a grain of rice in chopsticks.
