Birdwatching also known as Birding is the study and observation of birds. This is done either with the naked eye or with the help of binoculars. This hobby can be traced back to the late 18th century when people discovered that birds were actually pretty to look at and not just good to eat.
This Saturday, the Grand Valley Audubon Society is hosting the Fall Birding Festival. They will be presenting an introduction to bird watching for all you beginners out there. There will also be information on feeders and seeds, binoculars and birding scopes and even a bird banding station where you can learn about the procedure and how it helps us learn more about our feathered friends. Be sure to join in on one of the nature walks and the self guided scavenger hunt. You can also learn more about Western Colorado’s Owl Watch program.
This is a wonderful event for people of all ages so if you are into bird watching or would like to get started in it then this is an event you won’t want to miss.
