Birds of a Feather Flock Together - Try Cool Bird Watching

Updated on April 5, 2016

Cool Bird Watching

I like the sound of birds chirping in the morning, evening and night; it's the sound of nature's music. Birds seem to be free of worry; they eat every day, without worrying about when and where they will eat. They are so sociable with other birds. Birds fly in the air traveling where they may. Flying from tree to tree; they have no particular home. A birds colors and feathers are a creation that is awesome to just sit back and adore; by bird watching.

To actually view a wild bird with rare beauty is a blessing that no one else may have seen with the natural eye. Bird-watching can become a hobby for; lovers, friends, father and son, or anyone who appreciates the gift that birds are to us. Birds can also be pets in our homes, in a bird cage. Wild birds can be viewed in our own back yards if we know how to attract them. There are a few ways to attract wild birds; one is by having bird seeds and water for them. There are thousands of different birds that are never seen, in our immediate environment. This is why many bird-watchers capture rare seen birds in zoomed pictures or binoculars.

I don't believe that God put birds here to be ignored, but to be acknowledged. I believe birds are here to teach us something; and I have seen birds of a feather flock together. But observe birds for yourself and see how they interact with the environment and each other; then maybe we will learn at least one thing from them. Take time out on a weekend and just walk around the Recreational Park in your area, and sprinkle maybe some bread crumbs on the ground; and watch the birds eventually come by to eat them; it will be entertaining for you.

Different types of birds are of economic importance. Some species, particularly songbirds and parrots, are popular as pets. Other uses include the harvesting of guano (droppings) for use as a fertilizer.

Different Types of Birds

Great Gray Owl - Found from Alaska, Canada, northern Rocky Mountains, northern Minnesota, northern Europe and Asia. Habitats include stunted forests along the edge of the Arctic tree line.

The Tundra Swan - used to be called the "Whistling Swan.” The former name referred to the sound made by the slow, powerful beating of their wings in flight. They fly in v-shaped formations and may achieve speeds up to 100 miles an hour.

Song Sparrow - Breeds from the mainland Alaska east to Newfoundland and south to California, North Dakota, and Carolinas. Spends winters from southern Canada throughout the U.S. to the Gulf Coast and Mexico. Habitats include forest edges, also found in undergrowth in gardens and city parks. The importance of social influences on behavioral development can be seen throughout the period of song learning in song sparrows. Singing Finches are generally excellent singers. Many kinds of finches are kept as cage birds.

Great Blue Hero - Breeds locally from Alaska, south-central Canada, and Nova Scotia south to Mexico and West Indies. Spends winters in far southern Alaska, central U.S., and southern New England. Habitats include lakes, ponds, and rivers.

The Violet-crowned Hummingbird bird; this hummingbird is commonly found in stands of sycamore and cottonwood trees along streams in desert canyons.
