What is your favorite bird? Is it a goldfinch, hawk, or a cardinal? Birding, the sport of gazing at birds with binoculars, is growing each year. Watching the splendor of birds is a peaceful, fun, and inexpensive hobby. In honor of National Bird Day, begin your new hobby by viewing the birds in your own backyard. Get a bird feeder and observe these magnificent creatures as they eat, play, and sing.
