Things to know while choosing a gift for bird watcher.

Jul 6, 2008
So, how come ornithology believed to be a great pastime? Well it helps you meet up with other people, learn about birds and enjoy nature's aesthetic surroundings.

If there is any one you know who is also into this, present them with a birthday gift which can be used when they are spending time carrying out their hobby. What types of gifts do these people like? To understand this, study the kind of things they use when they go to watch the birds.

Perhaps if you give the person a hat, that would be a present that doesn't cost the earth. This gift would act to prevent sunburn and help them improve their vision.

The next item could be a pair of cargo pants with many pockets so they can put snacks and other necessary bits and pieces inside.

A bird watching vest is another item which has more areas to store items than a pair of combat pants. They can put their cell phone on one pocket, snacks, water, map, and insect repellent and more on the others making it within arm's length rather than taking this out of the back pack.

Just in case they need a new back pack as the old one is worn out, you could also gift them one. Backpacks come in several sizes and you don't require a large one because these people travel light.

Binoculars are possibly the most expensive, but the most appreciated, gift you can give to a bird watcher. Quality binoculars are pricey because of the optics involved which allow the bird watcher to see the birds from a distance with great clarity. There are a whole lot of varieties in binoculars, and price range too with the top-of-the-range versions able to be used in complete darkness; others can capture images, both still and moving.

Bird watching journals are used by most enthusiasts, after all how else would they keep account of what birds they've seen and where; this could be a great gift.

If none of these ideas work for you, have you ever thought of buying an ornithologist a one year subscription to a bird watching periodical? These are beautiful magazines published monthly (or quarter) and bear information and pictures of birds which live in remote and exotic places.

How about making a collection and buying a bird watching holiday for your friend to send them someplace they have not been like South America or Canada for instance; providing you've that kinda money! It is important to remember that there are thousands of species of birds in this world; several do not find the climate of US a suitable.

What does the person need and which places have they not visited are the questions that need answering before you can decide on a gift. A chat can reveal a great deal and you would get plenty of ideas; you can then choose a gift which is within your budget yet would make the person happy.

After the time spent finding the right gift, it may light a desire in you to start bird watching in the future. Rather than just supporting that person, you could soon join them on excursions!
