Enjoy The World's Best Bird-Watching on Rubber Duck Floaties

Rubber Duck Floaties 10
Our feathered friends have always been a source of amazement for us, with their eye-catching plumage and of course, the ability to fly. The variety of birds on Earth is too many to count and provides an ample source of wonder for the bird-watchers amongst us. From the flightless penguin to the colorful Gouldian finch, here are some of the most exotic places to see some birds!

Costa Rica

Costa Rica is one of the must-go birdwatching places in the world. The tropical country is packed with a multitude of nature reserves and boasts almost a thousand different bird species! As of November 2018, the official count stands at 919, which is more than the entire mainland United States and Canada combined. With Costa Rica being such as small country at around 20 thousand square miles, it also holds the title of having the greatest density of bird species in the American continent.

Birding here is an especially vibrant experience. The birds of Costa Rica are a multitude of shades and hues that will leave you gasping in wonder.

Look no further than the Wilson Botanical Gardens, which is home to more than 300 different species. Curi-Cancha Reserve, with over four miles of walkways, will give you a chance to spot motmots and trogons.

Kruger National Park, South Africa

One of the largest game reserves in Africa, Kruger National Park is popular not just amongst bird enthusiasts but general wildlife lovers as well. From October to March when the rains fall often and the plants are abundant, around 200 species come to the park to roost.

While here, one can try to complete what is known as the Big Six. The Big Six refers to completing the six most-wanted bird sightings here: the Kori Bustard, martial eagle, lappet-faced vulture, Pel’s fishing owl, saddle-billed stork, and the southern ground hornbill.

Only the fishing owl might prove slightly more difficult as it is active mostly during the night. A tour around the Olifants River or Luvuvhu River provides some of the best chances for birdwatching.

Norfolk, UK

Sitting in the east of the UK is Norfolk county, one of the best places for bird-watching in Britain. North Norfolk is especially well-known for having an extensive range of habitats for birds, making it one of the best not just in Britain but in the region as well.

The marshlands and dunes here draw all sorts of species, including the rare marsh harrier, which was once hunted to extinction in the UK.

Two of the reserves here that are especially worth visiting are the Titchwell Marsh and Cley Marshes. Titchwell Marsh, under the RSPB, sees more birds from the Arctic areas, such as warblers or black-tailed godwits.

Cley Marshes, on the other hand, is owned by the National Wildlife Trust and hosts waders, bearded tits and seabirds throughout the year.

Papua New Guinea

The island of Papua New Guinea is the center of Bird of Paradise diversity in the world, which makes it rather unique as far as birdwatching destinations go. This exotic family of birds is best caught during the dry spell between June and October, but outside of these months is fine as well.

The Raggiana serves as the national bird of Papua New Guinea, which can also be found as its national emblem and the national flag as well. One of the more standout features of this species is its plumage and its courtship dance, which is usually used to draw mates.

Alright, but for those actually interested in birdwatching — Not sure how to birdwatch? Don’t fret, here are some tips and tricks to get you started!

1. Ensure you have a good pair of binoculars that you are familiar with and have adjusted for yourself. It’s easy to be over-eager and try using your binoculars to spot birds first. Don’t do this, as spotting them with the naked eye first is easier.

2. It’s going to be difficult to get an accurate read on colors, so don’t focus too much on it and look out for other characteristics, such as size. With size, you’re going to want to use a reference object often to compare, as distances can make sizes appear deceiving. Other characteristics to look out for are the shape and silhouette of the bird, which is usually distinctive enough.

3. The environment plays a part in the identification of a bird. Do be sure to consider what is the likely range of species you would expect to see in a certain region. The behavior of the bird is also key, as common habits make for easier distinction.

4. Sound is an important sense to use besides just your eyes. The calls and songs of a bird are often a sure way to get the answer you’re looking for. Bringing along a field guide can be useful to aid you as well.

5. Don’t be afraid to make friends with more experienced birdwatchers, who would be more than willing to teach you the ropes.

That’s your guide to birdwatching! Birds are such spectacular creatures, it’s a pity that birdwatching is an activity stereotyped for middle-aged men. It’s a very fascinating and educational experience that will definitely have you feeling more connected with nature. Our rubber duck floaties will make sure you have such a good time, you’ll feel like you’re flying! No, floating, sorry. Happy birdwatching!
