From Fledgling to Expert
Wild Birds Unlimited-Nature Shop was opened in 1981 by a man whose mission was to share his love of bird feeding with others. Within two years, Jim Carpenter, the Founder, President, and CEO of this wonderful concept, began franchising his mission, including the store owned by Angela Thompson in Roseville. The doors opened to this lovely shop in 2016. Thompson’s passion for nature and the birding community is evident. Not only is the physical store well-appointed, catering from birding fledglings to seasoned birders, but she's also a passionate writer who shares her impressions on the shop's website. If you're not already a birding enthusiast, read on to learn why it may be just a hobby for you.
Top 10 Reasons Why People Enjoy Bird Watching
Experts who track things like the popularity of a hobby agree that the number of bird watchers has increased steadily and spiked in the last year. While there are many reasons given for the popularity of bird watching, here are the most common eight agreed upon by experts. The following list is given in random order. (1) Birds are everywhere. While there may not always be a vast variety of birds present or may not be a large number of birds present at once, there is hardly a place a person can go outdoors where birds aren’t present. You can always find birds to study. (2) Birds are a reason to go outside. Whether it's for a quick walk in fresh air or being in a bird-watching group, having the curiosity to see what bird can be spotted is a reason to get outside. (3). It's a flexible hobby. Unlike hobbies dependent upon things like equipment, location, weather, and level of expertise, bird watching is as flexible as it gets. From just sitting in nature watching birds to owning bird feeding stations, you can practice bird watching at any level. (4) Bird watching makes people feel connected to nature and others. As people learn about birds around them, they feel connected to what they see and much less isolated. Bird watching is an instant connection with other bird watchers, creating an opportunity for gaining new friends. (5) Bird watching is economical with the potential for limitless growth. Because the extent of involvement is up to the individual, it's a hobby that can be done with no investment other than a field guide. But on the other end of the spectrum, if a person wants to build entire vacations around birding, join a club or build elaborate bird feeding stations and birdhouses, the possibilities are endless. (6) Bird watching is a four-season hobby that can lead down many paths. Unlike many other outdoor hobbies, bird watching can be done throughout the year. It can also lead to other nature-related interests like butterfly watching, gardening, hiking, attending nature festivals, and traveling to birding hotspots all over the country and world. (7) Bird watching promotes habitat conservation. Often clubs and groups will collaborate on habitat needed for both to take on large conservation projects. The potential for mutual benefits between bird watchers and other groups who rely on nature is as vast as the wide-open spaces they work together to preserve. (8) Bird watching is a hobby that can be lifelong. From the very active to those with physical limitations, everyone can enjoy some aspect of birding. There are many ways to study birds, from observing them with the naked eye to using binoculars or identifying them by sound; bird watching allows for all activity levels and is a hobby open to one and all.
