Follow That Bird

- Friday, June 04, 2010

Bird-watching, or simply called "birding" by avid feather-finding fans, is a popular pastime for seniors, and the hobby continues to gain momentum.  What's the big deal?  A recent article in AARP The Magazine suggests that bird-watching provides a great escape.  It offers an opportunity to sit and experience the thrill of the unexpected.  In a  world where we try to modify and control everything, birding is something we can't control.  All Spring Arbor Living locations offer superb birding opportunities.

No birds outside?  No problem.  For a virtual birding experience, log on to AARP's Lifestyle Bird Page to view photos of common and rare species and test your knowledge of different bird calls.  And if your Dad does not have a great set of binoculars, remember, Father's Day is just around the corner.
