Bird Watching Aptitude Test

We’re sometimes asked, “What does it take to be a good birdwatcher?” Or sometimes an Englishman will ask, “What does it take to be a good twitcher?” Actually, birding doesn’t take much. A desire to be outdoors, suitable clothing, a pair of binoculars and a good field guide is about all that is necessary.

Patience is also required. Sometimes you have to wait for a bird to appear. More often, it is just a matter of  seeing what is already there. To check your “patience aptitude” here is a photo. There is a giraffe in the photo, but most people can’t see it until they settle the mind and calm the body.

Now, you are ready to go birding!
