Do you just so happen to be an expert in wild bird identification?

Did you just happen to as an expert in identifying wild birds? No, we did not, until we realized what a great hobby. We enjoy seeing the new wild bird we have not seen before, taking the beautiful birds to travel more in touch with the natural and of course, we enjoy our practice bird identification skills. For us, the study of birds are about the beauty of nature and the joy of hunting. Not trying to kill them, the hunt to take pictures of it and see the birds we have never seen before.
You are new to the study of birds? Do you know where the best place to begin the classification of birds? Your own backyard, right on the bird feeders you put up. We assume you know what seems to be a Blue Jay or an American Robin. You probably learned the names of birds as well as many others, because you see them often, even a small child. Knowing the names of some birds in your area is a good place to start.
Why the identification of wild birds so important? Because it will make it easier for them to learn from books to reference. If you keep a list of wild birds that you see, then it would be more helpful to know the name of it. You can even brag to your friends about the rare birds that visit your area. The latest addition to our list is the Northern Shrike, which is definitely a bird that is worth bragging about.
By knowing the names of wild birds visiting your feeders, it will help you learn more about them. You can easily study their mating habits, what they prefer to eat, their migration patterns and much more. This will allow more animals to attract to your yard.
What are some things you need? You have a pair of binoculars, a good field guide, a pencil and notepad. You can also use a camera to take with you, but it is not necessary. For your computer, you can also find birds software available that can help you identify the creatures you encounter.
If you follow a process, wild bird identification easier. Please note that no two bird field guides are the same. You should start training in your own backyard with the birds you know. How fast can a blue jay, cardinal or chickadee field guide?
