Birds of Kentucky: Don't have to feed birds to count them

I want to let people know they don't have to feed birds to be a bird watcher. You don't have to have feeders out to count the birds.

Birds are everywhere. Most people don't take the time to look if they don't have feeders but birds are there.

For the bird count you need a good guide book to help you identify the bird and Day and Day has a real good guide book.

If you have really good eyes you don't even need a set binoculars. That part is up to you and you can buy them locally.

If you are going to put out feeders to draw more birds to your yard you need to put them out now. If you haven't been feeding birds it could take them a while to come to the feeders. -M.E. Lewis
