Bird watching is a fairly simple but very entertaining hobby that is practiced in the United States and in many other countries. Bird watchers venture into natural areas to see new and exciting birds they have never seen before. You can start somewhere close to where you live, such as a park or bird sanctuary, or you can go to a more remote area. In general, bird watching is a quiet, relaxing activity that can also be very exciting and educational. Bird watching not only teaches us about birds, but also about nature, habitats and conservation.
