Birding is a recreational activity conducted to determine the identification, habits and habitats of birds. It is usually done with binoculars or spotting scopes or by the recognition of their calls during various times of the year. Often the nesting and feeding habits are observed and recorded as well as the migration paths and the appearance of rare or unusual visitors to certain regions of the country.
