Additionally, watching birds, like watching fish or other animals, seems to make people feel good – emotionally, physically, and spiritually.  That explains why according to a recent Census Report, over 65 million Americans enjoy feeding birds in their own backyard as a convenient way to appreciate and study nature.  In June of 2016, Dog Head Fire in New Mexico was ablaze, consuming nearly 18,000 acres.
