Birding and Brunch Great Idea!

Don with birding group

Had a great time Saturday at the traditional Birding and Breakfast event sponsored by the town conservation commission here in NH. We saw 50 species of birds on beautiful lands. Yellow Warblers, Common Yellowthroats were some of the most plentiful at this wetland area, while a Scarlet Tanager sang in the nearby woods. I assisted leader Phil Brown of NH Audubon to teach intermediate and new birders with things like learning the myriad of bird songs (learn the common birds near you first), spotting birds, using binoculars correctly, and how keying in on shape first (not colors) will fast forward your birding skills to the next level. This is a great time of year to visit beautiful and diverse birding habitats, as well as plant your own property to attract birds. Enjoy it!
