10 Great Trails for Bird-Watching



billkozyBillkozy on 05/20/2009

10GreatTrailsforBirdWatching Photo From Audubon Society Magazine 1998:
"A Mexican newspaper reports that bored Royal Air Force pilots stationed on the Falkland Islands have devised what they consider a marvelous new game.

Noting that the local penguins are fascinated by airplanes, the pilots search out a beach where the birds are gathered and fly slowly along it at the water's edge.

Perhaps ten thousand penguins turn their heads in unison watching the planes go by, and when the pilots turn around and fly back, the birds turn their heads in the opposite direction, like spectators at a slow-motion tennis match.

Then, the paper reports, 'The pilots fly out to sea and directly to the penguin colony and over-fly it.' Heads go up, up, up, and ten thousand penguins fall over gently onto their backs."

That describes a wonderful bird-watching phenomenon. Hopefully the trails listed here in this quiz provide a similarly fantastic experience for people. And now, here, according to National Wildlife magazine are, in alphabetical order, 10 trails worth a trip for bird-watchers.

Good Luck and please rate the quiz afterward.
Chirp chirp,
