Bird watching, often called birding, is the study of avian species through the use of binoculars, telescopes and other visual enhancements. It can also be done by listening to bird calls or by simply watching the birds. Since the majority of bird species are more easily detected by listening than by watching, auditory components are used more often.
Ornithologists typically engage themselves in bird watching because of their scientific study, but many birdwatchers pursue birding simply for the fun of it. For everyone else, bird watching is a leisure activity that is somewhat social and educational.
When it comes to striking wildlife, Mexico is one of the most blessed countries in the world. Home to some of the rarest species of animals, the tropical forests of Mexico provide shelter to many indigenous land and marine animals.
The Mexican wildlife includes bears, wolves, monkeys, snakes, iguanas, and tapirs; all wandering around the forest day and night. Mexico's tourist attractions also includes beautiful aquatic scenery and fascinating coral reeves for divers. Tourists and travelers can enjoy spending time marveling over the most splendid water animals like whales, sharks, turtles, and swordfishes. Giant manta rays with over fifteen foot wing span and friendly dolphins can also be seen outside the surf line of Santiago Bay, this attracting thousands of vacationers from around the world.
