Bird Behavior

Birds at Bird Feeder

Watching bird behavior

Watching bird behavior can be one of the most rewarding past times. Not only does it help with identification but it also teaches the natural history of the bird.

• How does the bird move, fly?
• How does the bird feed?
• Is the bird social, comes in group or alone?
• Have you seen any displays - mating, territory?

Watch as the birds fly away or from tree to tree in your yard. Here is the flight pattern of an American Goldfinch.
