Have you ever been bird watching locally, or when you were travelling? Is it something you'd like to do?

I haven't been out on a field trip bird watching but it is part of my itinerary for when we go to Kakadu, they have some amazing birds up there!

We went for a drive into the rainforest here and saw a lyrebird a couple of months ago, that was really exciting, and I love watching the honey eaters in the protea out our front window.
I've never been "properly" bird watching. But we love keeping an eye out for birds while travelling. We've seen some great ones! Brolga's, wedge tailed eagles, bustards and emus out west. All manner of parrots and cockatoos. Penguins down south. And every sort of cormorant, finch, egret and heron imaginable! But the best for me was seeing jabirus in the wild up near Darwin. Absolute best thing EVER!
I was about to reply that I hadn't, but I did go kiwi watching when I was in New Zealand. Does that count?
I reckon it does! That's a cool thing to do :D kiwis are cute.

It reminds me that I went and saw the penguins at Phillip Island when I was a teenager.

I'm not patient enough to go bird watching.
Only once, every day where we lived it had and still does the most sweet little birds.
They would wake me up singing, and it is only 20 mins away from where we live now.
Yet......we never did find out what kind of bird it was.I just loved it so much.
There was always plenty around too.
I have native trees in my garden and often find rainbow lorikeets feasting on their offerings. We don't need to go out specifically to bird watch because it is an incidental to our lives.
I haven't gone out with the intent of watching birds per se, but when I am out and about, I'll have a geez. One of my husband's friends goes bird watching. He takes a pair of binoculars and off he goes. I think it's great!

I never go out deliberately to bird-watch, but often when I'm cycling or hiking in the bush I'll stop somewhere to quietly rest, and then I'll watch the native birds.
I love birdwatching. We're lucky in having native birds that live around where we live, and I can sit on my front or back veranda and see different bird species. On of my favourite things is to do just that, sit out there and be with the birds.
My husband and I enjoy bird watching though we are by no means experts. Last September we had a lovely afternoon at Mathoura Reed Beds Bird Hide near Echuca and a couple of weeks ago we went to the Baxter Wetlands Bird Hide at Wonthaggi. We have some small wetlands near our local shops that we love visiting and a lake on our estate with an abundance of water birds.
I'm watching my two little trouble making budgies right now! As we speak Veigar is trying to tip his food bowl.
Just watch the lorikeets, out my verandah windows, squawking away in our native trees!
Love listening to them!
no, i'd like to
I went bird watching with my husband and we went with a club, I found it boring, I love to see different birds in the garden, when I'm in Robe they have little blue wrens flying about, they are such beautiful little birds, but I won't go bird watching with a club again, they were nice people, I just found it boring.
