Here is an interesting video of birdwatching in the Netherlands by Michael de Vries about the birds in his garden.

(I cannot read his language, but the video and music is very delightful. After an into; at about 0:57 he starts giving their names.)

  1. By the way, it really gets to me that most birders believe in the “theory” of evolution. I don’t see how you can pay attention to birds like that and not know there was a Designer! Soli Deo Gloria!

  2. Quick question: Is it possible to go birdwatching at MacDill AFB, even though it is listed as “restricted access”? We are visiting the area next week, any guidance would bee appreciated, we love skimmers! Thank you. Arlene

    • My Husband is retired military, so we can get in, but not sure about the rules for visitors. Last time we were at their beach about a month ago, the beach was practically empty. A few terns. In the past winters, the beach had hundreds of skimmers.

    • I don’t know about your air force base, but our army base will allow birdwatchers who are sponsored by someone who lives on base, or they have to get a pass. It got more restrictive in the past few years. I recommend you contact the base and ask them what you must do to get access for birdwatching.

  3. My email is down, but I found out what the “Secretary Bird” was. It’s a Crested Screamer. THIS bird is very beautiful. I wish we had birds like that in the States.
