Bird-watching and Green Building

Green building involves practices that have a minimal negative impact on the surrounding environment. This includes using renewable materials and reducing the amount of pollutants that are released into the air and water. As a result, green building practices also help to reduce health threats to both people and wildlife. Reducing contamination of the air and soil also allows people to continue enjoying and observing nature. Bird watching is an example of a hobby that benefits from green building practices as pollutants and chemicals in water can be hazardous to the health of birds.

Bird watching is a relaxing and popular hobby for many people in the U.S. and around the world. It is a way to spend time outdoors and enjoy the overall beauty of nature. Most importantly, it is a way for people to observe, study, and educate themselves about the different species of birds in a given area. As a relatively inexpensive hobby to start, bird watching is suitable for nearly anyone with a pair of binoculars. While many travel to view birds in various locations, some choose to go no further than their own backyard. A good way to encourage birds to visit one's yard is to create a safe environment that will attract them. This may include installing a water bath, growing flowers that are native to the region, and even putting out a bird seed dispenser.
