Wildlife Viewing Tips
  • Dawn and dusk are the best times to see wildlife.
  • Move or sit quietly and watch for movement or listen for sounds.
  • Look for animal signs. Tracks, scat, feathers and nests left behind often telling stories.
  • Keep a safe distance to avoid disturbing an animal from a feeding area, den, or nest. Use binoculars or a telephoto lens for a closer look.
  • Cars make good observation blinds. Drive slowly, and stop at open areas that provide good observation points.
  • Don't feed wildlife -- human food can disrupt wild digestive systems and alter natural feeding habigs.
  • Leave "abandoned" young along. A parent is most likely close by waiting for you to leave.
