I have started liking watching the Birds in Parks and other open spaces, I also like to take their photogrphs, How many of you like to watch the Birds? What are your experiences on this?

I love to watch birds. I have a bird feeder just outside my kitchen window and like to watch them come to eat. There aren't as many different kinds here as there were where I used to live, but they're interesting to watch anyway.

I find birds fascinating. They're so pretty! I'm still trying to figure out what a particular bird I sighted about a month ago was. I wish I'd taken a picture. I caught sight of it in flight on the west side of El Paso, Texas, and it certainly did not look native (a lost migrant bird, maybe?). I'm guessing it was larger (by quite a bit, wingspan certainly larger than 2, possibly 3 feet, at least) than a raven, all white, appeared to have a long neck with its head tucked up into its shoulders so that its neck hung folded below it (like some kind of stork, maybe?). It was pretty high up, so I could not discern whether its legs were dangling behind it or whether they were tucked up underneath. It flew by flapping rather than gliding. I mean, It was SOME kind of stork, egret, or heron at least, but I wish I knew exactly what.

I got interested in birdwatching because my mom used to have a large birdfeeder very close to our livingroom window. You could see many different types...finches, sparrows, junkos, and chickadees visited every day. Now, I go for hikes and see other types of birds...hawks, songbirds, osprey and eagles. I find birds and birdsongs amazing!! Now that spring is approaching, I look forward to hearing the mating calls.
