Birding doesn’t have to be expensive. You can purchase expensive optics and equipment and embark on world travel. But it can be equally satisfying to bird while spending very little money. All you really need to get started bird watching is sharp eyes and ears and perhaps a journal to record sightings in. Should you want to invest in gear, we have advice on buying binoculars, scopes, bird guides and other equipment. You don’t have to travel far to glimpse birds in their natural habitat. Many great birding sites are within a short distance of where you live or work, and annual bird festivals offer opportunities for bird watching and education year-round.
