Birding, the art of observing birds in their natural habitats, is a popular hobby enjoyed by many. While it may seem like just a fun pastime, birding has been shown to have numerous mental health benefits, including reducing anxiety levels.
Recently some of the folks at Wingscapes had a chance to talk to a true Super User of TimelapseCam Pro. Joel Eklof is a Ph.D. student at the University of Washington in Dr. Rebecca Neumann’s Hydro-Biogeochemical Research Group.
So you’ve decided to try backyard birding. Great! Birding is a fun hobby, with many benefits. It’s educational, therapeutic, entertaining, and an environmentally friendly way to conserve birds in your own yard.
The temperature outside continues to rise and summer is right around the corner! Unfortunately for bird watching enthusiasts, the increased availability of natural food sources may result in less visitors to your feeder, but don’t despair!
