Ever seen a commercial on television saying that this episode will air at this time but you won’t be able to see it? Well, it is a good thing that we now have Tivo to record it for us. But if you want to keep a copy of the show especially if it has something to do with bird watching, it is great to know that there are videos.
These bird watching videos are well made because these are produced by the likes of the Animal Planet, Discovery or the National Geographic. When they make a video, they do a lot of planning and editing before the final copy is aired and made into various formats.
One thing you will notice about bird watching videos is that you will never always find the complete edition in the video store. If you want a copy, you have to buy it online or become a member of a group and get the chance to buy it at a discount.
The bird watching videos you will find are all informative. You will learn what distinguishes one bird from another, what are the basics of bird watching, what food they eat, where they live, how they mate, what are the mating calls or sounds that birds make and a list of other things.
What is so interesting about these bird watching videos is the fact that some of the clips came from Europe and Asia. While we have hundreds of species of birds in the United States, you won’t find certain creatures which live in hot and cold climates.
But aren’t magazines better than videos? The answer is yes and no. Yes because magazines are published every month or every other month. No because all you can do is look at the picture instead of watching how the bird takes off, flies in the air and lands which only a video recording can offer.
Bird watching videos which were once available only in VHS format can now be seen since on DVD. This will allow you to watch it on your laptop or desktop instead of relying on a player and television.
Aside from ordering for bird watching DVD’s online, you can also download an entire feature from various sites assuming someone was nice enough to upload it. You can even try looking for a few clips of this in youtube.com given that a lot of people have uploaded personal and home videos.
If you decide to buy one video, try buying more because some retailers will give you a discount, give you an extra copy for free or won’t even charge for delivery. While the free copy you get may be a few years old, the information provided here is still useful.
There are many ways that a bird watching enthusiast can learn more about birds. They can read up on it or watch the video. Although they may not be as interesting as one of the block office hits made by Hollywood, just remember that it is educational. You just have to find the resources available so you can learn about birds in the comforts of your own home.
In the end, books, magazines and videos are merely instruments to help learn more about birds instead of bird watching somewhere in the wilderness.
