I just want to give You a 'Head's Up' that Bird watching today is much different than the old stereotypes from the 50's! With all the new technology tools available, birding is more rewarding than ever before. Of course, the Internet has opened many new sites devoted to birds. Do your Google Search to find anything about birds. There are still the formal Scientist birders, but informal backyard birding is the growing hobby/sport that anyone can do. Some people like the thrill of the hunt and drive all over to see certain birds. Others, (like me), prefer to build the backyard habitat and live with the birds. I see the same ones every day and therefore, get to know them! Your Photostudy tonight is an update of a few of the baby cardinals, plus new photos of the baby black vulture. Enjoy!
The Baby Cardinals:
Birding, birdwatching, and twitching
Birder. The acceptable term used to describe the person who seriously pursues the hobby or sport of birding. May be professional or amateur.Birding. A sport and/or hobby in which individuals enjoy the challenge of bird study, listing, or other general activities involving bird life.Bird-watcher. A rather ambiguous term used both to describe the person who watches birds for any reason at all, and, more recently, to refer to a person who watches girls. Used mostly in fun. Should not be used to refer to the serious birder. The word "BIRD-WATCHING" is in the same category, of course.—Birding, Volume 1, No.2

...this is brendasue signing off from Rainbow Creek. See You next time! Remember to get a bag of birdseed and throw it out as you drive or walk. Birds use the streets and roads to hunt for food and for navigation. Think about the other living creatures and plants on this Earth and develop a respectful and caring feeling toward all life. You will be the one who benefits by the goodness You become!
