How do people do birdwatching?

Birdwatching mostly involves the auditory senses. The bird's chirping, cawing, etc can identify what type of bird it is as each bird makes a unique sound. Also, by hearing you can roughly make out where the bird is located and then you can spot the bird with your eyes. If birdwatchers hear the sound of a bird and locate the rough region of where the sound was coming from, most log the bird as being found.
