Springtime is an excellent time to look for songbirds around local waterways. Lakes, ponds, creeks and woodland streams are all good places to spot warblers, sparrows, chickadees and other songbirds.
As with most birdwatching, the best time to visit these areas is usually early morning or late afternoon, when birds are more active.
Although many birds are shy, some are quite curious and will actually approach humans that remain quiet and resist the urge to make sudden movements.
A camera is always worthwhile to carry on spring birdwatching trips as something new can appear at any moment.
