Even in the middle of town, you’re never far away from a feathered friend or two.

Perhaps it’s because it’s like a free, fun and al fresco scavenger hunt. Or maybe it’s simply the thrill of the chase. Whatever the reason, birdwatching in NSW is enjoying a resurgence as a popular holiday activity for young and old.

Reflections Holiday Parks Eden BirdsCome join the colourful locals at Reflections Holiday Parks Eden!

Thankfully, birdwatching doesn’t require special equipment, especially when starting out. Leave the bird hides for the serious twitchers. Binoculars are great if you already have them, but in many cases the naked eye works just as well.

You’ll need a notebook and pencil, so you can jot down notes, and a field guide to identify the feathered friends you’ve seen.  There are also field guide mobile apps, perfect for recording and submitting sightings, and some even feature bird calls to assist with identification.

Bird Watching at Reflections Holiday Parks Burrinjuck WatersDon't forget to pack the binoculars for a spot of bird watching when you visit Reflections Holiday Parks Burrinjuck Waters.

The easiest way to get started? Go outside and see what you can see. Or for a more targeted approach, select a local species and then search for that bird. Find it, tick it off your list, then select another one.

Either way, don’t rush. Stay quiet and just wait. Shut your eyes and listen to the sounds around you. Enjoy the peace and quiet and simply appreciate your spectacular natural surrounds.

Other birdwatching tips (with thanks to Birdlife Australia) include avoiding hot days and going out in the early morning (as they say, the early bird catches the worm!). You should also wear suitable clothing, take plenty of water, and let someone know where you’re going and when you’ll be back.

So what are you waiting for? Let your new hobby take flight and book your next bird watching break with Reflections Holiday Parks.
