When Is The Best Season To Go Birdwatching?

You just got yourself a spotting scope as a Christmas present, and you’re excited to finally go out and use it, but it’s all snowy outside, and for you, it may seem like you have to wait til summer before you can start birding. But that’s not the case.

There is never a bad time to go birdwatching, some seasons are better than others, but with each season comes unique birds.

Best Times of The Year To Go Birdwatching

#1 Spring and fall are the best times to go birdwatching. In this period, birds tend to gather in huge groups that will be easy for you to spot.

#2 The breeding season. During the breeding seasons birds tend to be a bit shyer, but at the same time, they are also very active during this period as they tend to claim territories and attract the opposite sex. There simply isn’t anything better than finding a nice bird nest and viewing it from a long distance with your spotting scope.

#3 The winter. During the cold months, it’s harder to spot birds usually, as most of them have migrated during these months. But you can get lucky and spot some really unique ones.
