When taking family vacations in the Catskills one of the most enjoyable things to do is birdwatching. Birdwatching also known by practitioners of the hobby as birding.
Done with the naked eye, as well as through visual enhancement devices like binoculars and telescopes, or by listening for bird sounds connecting with birds in nature is one of the most gratifying of all hobbies. Bird watching should also be called bird listening since it often involves a significant auditory component. Many bird species are more easily detected and identified by ear than by eye but even the beginner can enjoy a Catskill mountain hike while enjoying birds at play.
One of the best places to find lodging for a birding weekend is the Catskill bed and Breakfast.
