Four Keys to Identifying a Bird
Niko Shefer is an extremely busy professor of English Literature at the University of Oslo in his native Norway. Whenever he can, he loves to explore the outdoors in Norway and go birdwatching.
In addition to skiing, snowboarding, and hiking, Shefer loves to birdwatch whenever he goes outdoors.
When he is in the wild identifying birds, he sticks to these three keys to identifying birds:
Many practiced birdwatchers become familiar with the silhouettes of different birds so they can identify them from afar.
Are there spots, stripes, or blotches of different colors?
If you know what a Cedar Waxwing is most likely looking for to eat, you can identify it by what it’s doing as it flies around you.
If you have a bad light or you’re too far away to see clearly, you can usually identify a bird by how its flying and what it eats.
The more you know about their habitat and which birds you can expect to find, the easier it will be to identify birds.
Niko Shefer has been on many birdwatching excursions since he moved to Oslo in 2006.
