A birder, for those not familiar with the term, is a person who seriously pursues the hobby of birdwatching.
Friends recommended installing a bird feeding station in our garden, to which this year I’ve added half-a-dozen different types of bird feeders. These feeders hold black Sunflower seeds, Sunflower seed hearts, suet logs, Nyger seeds, peanuts, and mixed bird seed, etc.
I’ve mentioned here before my problems with bird identification. The images of bird species in our books on birds are often unhelpful. So, next purchase is a good book on bird identification.
Having binoculars at the ready for birwatching proves my birder tendency. I’m a fair weather birder, since birdwatching is from our nice warm conservatory. I can report that – and I’m unseemly proud of this – we’ve Redpolls and Siskins visiting our bird feeding station.
