Wildlife viewing includes the study, observation and conservation of wildlife and their natural environment and birding is a more specific form of viewing. There may be opportunities to identify these creatures by silhouette, field marks, posture, size, flight pattern or habitat. Hearing their songs and sounds is also a possibility! Wildlife viewing is a skill that people of any age can take back to their city or country homes and use, as they are found anywhere in Pennsylvania. Collect your camera, binoculars and hiking shoes and get out there and find some of our fine feathered or furry friends!
Hiking while looking for wildlife for 30 minutes burns approximately 204 calories.
