You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world.
But when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird.
So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing - that's what counts
I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.
~ Richard P. Feynman


Bird Watch Bird watching or birding is the observation and study of birds with the naked eye, through a visual enhancement device like binoculars and telescopes, or by listening for bird calls. Birding often involves a significant auditory component, as many bird species are more readily detected and identified by ear than by eye. Most birdwatchers pursue this activity mainly for recreational or social reasons, unlike ornithologists, who engage in the study of birds using more formal scientific methods.

@@Out of the number of lakes,parks and forest areas in the city which can serve as good birding spots to begin

birding at we've listed a few here. Just look around you, you may spot a bird at the top of a tree or on a wire or at the tip of a branch:) You will be able to spot almost all common birds at these spots such as Red Vented Bulbul, Purple Sunbird, Ashy Warbler, Ashy Prinia, Common Myna, Black Drongo, Asian Koel, etc and common water birds such as Little/Median/cattle Egret, Purple Moor Hen, Pond Heron, Common Coot, Whistling Duck, Spot Billed Duck, Painted Stork, Greater Cormorant, etc.@@
