Early morning is typically the best time
of the day for birding since many birds are searching for food which
makes them easier to find and observe.
As the numbers
of birdwatchers increases every day, there is growing concern about the
impact of birdwatching on the birds and their habitat. Birdwatching
etiquette is evolving in response to this concern.
Some examples of birdwatching etiquette include promoting the welfare
of birds and their environment; avoiding stressing the birds by
limiting use of photography and playback devices; keeping back from
nests and nesting colonies; and respecting private property.
