I like watching birds. I also like shooting them--but I really do like watching them right up until that point. So does that make me a birdwatcher? A survey of Birding in the United States, newly introduced by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service as an addendum to the 2006 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation, seems to draw a distinction between hunters and birdwatchers, but I suspect there's a lot of crossover.
