Inscription. Birdwatching is a popular hobby for many in Alabama. Not only are birds fun to watch, but they also tell us a lot about environmental health.

Pileated Woodpecker • Red-tailed Hawk • Yellow-bellied Sapsucker • Cardinal • Bluebird • American Robin

Bird-watching Tips
• Don’t disturb nests • Move slowly and quietly • Use binoculars to view from a distance • Leave pets at home • Wear neutral colored clothes • Don’t feed the birds

Decreasing bird populations can indicate serious environmental problems that will eventually affect humans. We can protect birds by protecting and maintaining a healthy diverse ecosystem.
