Backyard Bird

Beauty Of Animal | The Backyard Bird | Bird watching is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the America, and around the world.  According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service around 60 million people feed birds in the US.  The only outdoor hobby that is more popular is gardening, and the two combine naturally. Birding is enjoyed by all ages. 
For our flying friends the benefit is reliable food sources provided by feeders.  This is a fascinating hobby whether you just want to observe birds in your yard or a local park, or get more serious, and take birding vacations to remote areas.

Birds are probably the most fun to watch of all animals.  
They have spectacular unmatched colors.  The dazzling colors of hummingbirds, peacocks or parrots is unmatched by other animals.  Their stream-lined anatomy gives them the ability to fly with grace, and ease. Their songs and calls are enchanting melodies that rival the music of any animal, and brighten up even dreary days.
Some birds have fascinating social behavior such as courtship, which may include exotic dance or elaborate nests and bowers.  In a Cedar waxwing dance the pair will hop from side to side while passing a berry back and forth.  Some even have strange behavior such as the male hornbill, which locks his mate into a tree cavity for weeks at a time.  
Killdeers will pretend to have a broken wing to lure predators away from their nest.  Nuthatches will spread their wings and point their bills at other another bird to challenge it.  This is often seen at bird feeders.  All this makes them awesome entertainers.  Who would not be awed by the sight and sound of migrating geese, or the sight of huge flocks of blackbirds as they flow in waves across the sky?
