How to view wildlife

Successful wildlife viewing depends on a little luck and a lot of preparation. Before leave home, improve your chances of success by considering some of these questions: What kinds of animals can I expect to see in the habitats I’ll visit? What are the best seasons or times of day to see them? Will I need binoculars, spotting scopes, field guides or other special equipment? Will my presence disturb wildlife or scare them away?
