Birdwatching Dot Com
Ah, the fox sparrows are back. They bring such life to the gray-brown woods with their own lovely grays and browns.

Everyone interested in watching wild birds deserves her or his very own binoculars.
A good binocular for getting started does not have to be expensive, but it should have good optical quality.
The Eagle Optics Shrike 8x42 costs only $99.99.
A field guide (bird book) will help you to recognize the birds that
share your life.
One that we like a lot is the National Geographic Guide to Birds of North America, Fifth Edition. It covers all the
birds in North America, and the illustrations are beautiful.
