Birds are Mother Nature's marvel of all the colors unique to each type of bird. Bird watching can be a great family activity for young and old. The thrill of spotting a bird that you have never seen before is a rush. Now you have to identify it so you will know what it is the next time you see it. Many people plan vacations around going somewhere that they spot a different species, many even travel to different countries. The best way to enjoy bird watching is to get a few books and educate yourself on the different birds in your area.
