While bird-watching—or birding, as it’s called by serious enthusiasts—can be done all over the country, there are several reasons The Natural State is an especially good place to spot specific fowl: Our central location gives a new meaning to the term “flyover country,” as species from other parts of the nation tend to stop along the way on migration routes. Plus, the state’s varied geographic regions offer habitats for diverse species, from hummingbirds to egrets and all manner of shapes and sizes in between. The great thing about this hobby, though, is you can enjoy the songs and sights of many fine-feathered friends (like the female house finch, pictured here) from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a pair of binoculars, a window, and a little patience.
