September 28, 2007, Newsletter Issue #83: Keeping A Bird Watching Journal

Tip of the Week

Many bird watchers like to keep a "life list" of the birds they have seen on bird watching holidays. But if you´re serious about bird watching, a checkmark on a list is almost useless for scientific purposes.

Instead, keep a field notebook or bird watching journal. When you go birding, write down which birds you see, where and when you see them, and what the birds are doing. Many years from now, your vacation memories could become scientific treasure.
