All About Bird Watching

Bird watching is a sport that’s a favorite in the early 1900s. The expression was first used in 1901 but more frequently in the context of hunting of birds. Later on, it had a more authoritative meaning of observing the birds. From the behavioral modifications to the technological changes, the whole concept was revamped.

However, what stays intact is the love for birds and nature. They never hesitate even though this means travel to far off lands to catch a glimpse of the feathered friends.

This phenomenon is known as twitching and the bird watcher is twitcher. The competitive spirit leads to healthy competition among them in terms of who’s first seen a particular species or whose listing of birds has more ticks.Victorian age was a witness for this kind of bird watching. 

As the fad caught up and an increasing number of people start to take up this as a hobby, tons of books came to the marketplace and some great ones such as “Where to watch birds” by John Gooders turned out to be best sellers. Check out online websites if you want to explore more bird watching (which is also known as ” ม่านสลิงป้องกันนก” in the Thai language  ).

When earlier only 4 percent of Americans were curious, this amount became 11 percent in a decade and it’s still rising. Rather than what the perception is, bird watching has always been equally enjoyed and chased by girls. Had it not been the guidebook of Florence Merriam, no novices would opt this pastime. The first bird sanctuary became a reality by the attempts of Rosalie Edge whose conclusion protected the birds from mindless killing.

There are now about 80 million bird interested Americans who love to visit the outside and do some watching. It’s not simply the America but the whole world is now contributing to this relaxing yet enchanting hobby. Festivals and guided tours are organized for the keen bird watchers and this is a really flourishing business.
