The Best Places To Bird Watch

Aug 17, 2007
Bird watching is a popular hobby among a variety of people, mostly older people who love relaxing and being in an outdoor setting. This form of recreation does not, however, appeal to everyone, as it can be very slow-paced, requiring a person to be still and quiet for a long amount of time. Still, most people would love to at least go on a bird watching expedition once in their lifetime, just to say they did!

If you are a bird connoisseur or just a fly-by-night spectator, knowing which places will make spectacular bird watching experiences is important. We will now find out what locations are perfect to watch our beautiful winged friends.

Hot Destinations For A Bird Watching Crew

Beautiful birds of all shapes and sizes can be seen all across North America and the world. Finding a proper resting place to watch these creatures is important, as you do not want to disturb the delicate balance or the daily routines of the birds. Staying incognito is a good idea while bird watching, as well as staying quiet so as not to frighten the birds. Different seasons provide a considerable variation in what type of birds you will see, as well as migration patterns. Even rare birds can be spotted from time to time in locations that they do not ordinarily live.

Alaska is one state in North America where bird watching is a thing of grandeur. Attu Island is one province that is worth the trip. From here, you can truly see a world of bird varieties, including rare migrants who seldom live in this climate. The weather conditions in Alaska make it difficult to withstand the cold, yet for the true bird enthusiast, this is a destination you do not want to miss. Banff National Park and Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada is one of the most gorgeous places in the Canadian Rockies. More than 260 species of birds have been seen here, and it is even good to go in the wintertime as well.

In California, many birds in migration can be spotted at Joshua Tree, which is a desert-like environment. There are many eastern vagrant birds that travel to this location and wind up staying.

Georgia's Okefenokee Swamp is a famous wetland in the United States and is home to many special birds such as the Red-cockaded Woodpecker and the Bachman's Sparrow. These varieties cannot be seen elsewhere, so they are a treat to behold in this marshy and humid place.

Exploring the many wonderful bird watching locations provides adventure and memories galore. This is what makes bird watching a worthwhile pursuit and a relaxing hobby.
