Another thing to do when you're starting is to find out what birds are common in your area in different seasons. Then you try to learn the appearance, behaviour and song of those birds....and that makes it easier to identify them. Some birders I've gone on walks with can identify a bird from far away based on it's flight pattern or song, it's amazing!
I'm working on this myself!
If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one!

Hi, I'm Kathy. We've only had a feeder up for a couple of weeks. I still haven't found a good place to identify birds when I only know a few details. We have a real bird freeway, and I can fill a page with notes while having coffee in the morning.
