Birdwatching on NBC 4/21/2021

This morning on the Today Show they had an item about the hobby of bird watching. They interviewed a person from Cornel University about e bird & birdwatching (birding). They said since the pandemic millions have taken up birdwatching. Also they gave a difference between bird watching & birding. The bird watcher its a casual hobby. A birder is more intense about the hobby. The birder will travel to track a new bird species they have not seen before. Dave

I've always said that the difference between bird watchers and birders is that a bird watcher will go to a park for a picnic and take along a pair of binoculars in case they see some birds, whereas a birder will go to a park to look for birds and take along some food in case they get hungry.
