Cardinal Favorite Birds for Bird WatchingBluebird

Use our Favorite bird watching list to help identify and understand some of North Americas favorite birds.

Attracting birds to your own backyard is a great way to enjoy the hobby of bird watching.

People love the wild birds in their backyards and want to know more about them. Birds are the only other two-legged creatures on our planet and they are fascinating. The mystery of flight, and the beauty of the individual species entrance bird watchers.

All bird watchers have their favorites. American Robin, Goldfinch, Chickadees, Mockingbirds, Woodpeckers, Nuthatches, Blue Jays, Cardinals …there are too many to mention.

On this page you will find links to the most popular backyard birds, state birds, and North American Bird lists. My personal favorites are described in the pages of this site.  These are also the favorite birds for bird watching across America.

In addition to information about favorite birds for birdwatching you will find information about feeders, birdhouses and nest boxes, bird songs and calls, bird plumage, parts and anatomy and much more on All-birds.com.

Bird watching or birding is the second most popular outdoor hobby in America. The only hobby that is as popular is gardening. Bird watching is also the fastest growing of all outdoor recreational activities. It is estimated that there are 60 to 70 million bird watchers in the US.

What is Project FeederWatch?

Project FeederWatch is a winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders at backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locales in North America.

FeederWatchers periodically count the highest numbers of each species they see at their feeders from November through early April. FeederWatch helps scientists track broad scale movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance.

Project FeederWatch is operated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in partnership with the National Audubon Society, Bird Studies Canada, and Canadian Nature Federation.
