It’s also a perfect and inexpensive way to spend a beautiful day with your date!

And, you are sure to learn some fun and interesting bird facts along the way. There are cool phone apps to help you along, such as “IBird” which is available for both Apple or Android. Additionally, there are many excellent field guides out there, such as “The Sibley Field Guide to Birds” which you should be available find at your local library.
