Pandemic has impacted the lives of people in many ways, and it has also helped people explore their hobbies and vocations. One habit that many have picked up during this time is bird watching. People have had all the spare time to notice the sparrows, parrots, or bulbuls that live right amidst us. And it’s not just watching; now, many are busy capturing these tiny wonders in their camera. Things have changed drastically in the past year, shares Rajeev Khandelwal, who is also a member of the Hyderabad Birding Pals (HBP). He further adds that many have joined their group on social media and have been actively posting bird pictures that they had clicked.




While watching birds is considered therapeutic by many, it also means one has to have a lot of patience. A new birder confesses that watching a bird can come only with practice. However, he says it is a rather relaxing hobby. He shares that one gets to see so many new species, some of which are not available in pictures.


But great care and dexterity are needed for bird-watchers as they need to sit still as the birds get disturbed by the tiniest of sounds. Also, if one wants to photograph them, then not finding a bird can be totally frustrating. However, Rajeev warns that it’s best to start with a simple DLSR model, to begin with instead of going for hi-end cameras.


Their group goes further away from the city to greener areas to watch birds. So, Rajeev has a few tips:


  • One needs to carry good binoculars to spot birds easily.
  • One needs to stay on designated trails and stay away from the habitat of birds.
  • Always keep the phone on silent or switch off mode.
  • Wear camouflage clothes instead of bright colors as these could distract birds.
  • Cover the body fully to get protection from mosquitoes, insects, snakes, and one has to carry repellents.
  • Carry enough water and snacks for the whole day.
  • Remember, bird watching takes a long time.
