A few pointers:

Identify: Look at a few books or go online and get familiar with the variety of birds in your area so you will know what the bird looks like. Each bird is specially adapted to a particular habitat.

Equipment: Good shoes, binoculars, notebook and a camera. Dress in darker colors or earth tones to blend into the background.

Quiet. Birds are easily startled by loud noises and will flee to cover. Minimizing noise gets you much closer to a bird. Refrain from making sudden moves.
