Here’s something you can do from a window of your home: bird watching. The Associated Press reports that weeks of being in lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic has Americans heading outdoors to see birds in action as it’s both peak nesting and migration season for hundreds of bird species. For example, the free bird identification app from the Cornell Lab or Ornithology was downloaded 8,500 times during Easter weekend alone, and downloads were up 102 percent year over the past year. Visits to Cornell’s live bird cams have also doubled, as have downloads of the National Audubon Society’s bird identification app compared to March and April 2019. Preliminary figures also indicate that sales of bird feeders, nesting boxes, and birdseed are spiking.
