... Birding (also known as birdwatching) refers to observing and identifying birds in their native habitats (Ş ekercioglu, 2002), while avitourism refers to birding away from one's usual place of residence. Avitourism and other nature-based tourism have been growing, also in Norway and other European countries (Steven et al., 2015;Janeczko et al., 2021;Fredman & Haukeland, 2021). Avitourism is apparently the most popular non-consumptive wildlife tourism activity and provides substantial potential for sustainable tourism (Connell, 2009;Biggs et al., 2011;Li et al., 2013;U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, n.d.). ...

Preferences for recreation in forest areas are the subject of many research studies (Hammit & Patterson 1993, Janeczko et al. 2017, Mandziuk et al. 2019a, Arnberger et al. 2020, Carrus et al. 2020 focusing on time spent on recreation, e.g., collecting the products of forest undergrowth (Remm et al. 2018) and enjoying the benefits of leisure in forests (Mandziuk et al. 2020). Urban forests are forest areas under the management of city or town authorities, usually located within or near the territorial range of urban agglomerations. ...
