What equipment do I need to be a birder?
Frequently Asked Questions about birding #7
What equipment do I need to be a birder? It is entirely up to the individual and what their budget is like. Great enjoyment of birds can be derived from merely looking at or listening to birds Ã¢â‚¬â€œ with no equipment at all. Having a few extra items, while not essential, can really enhance oneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s appreciation of birds. These include:
- Field guide
- Note book
- Computer database
- Bird calls on CDs or tapes.
- Magazines, books, DVDs, videos
- Membership of a birding club or organisation.
Over the next few days I will be writing about some of these things.
