Birding: A Handy Guide
Birding, or recreational bird watching, is a
great way to learn more about the wildlife
around IH and Australia – it’s also super fun.
Tips for Birding
– Don’t talk loudly
– Slow movements
– Just resign yourself to the fact that you will
very rarely get a good photo of a bird cause
they’re fast little buggers.
– Have fun : )))))))))
