With this mod, Sims cannot birdwatch during hail or heavy/torrential precipitation. Additionally, Sims can autonomously birdwatch only when all of the following conditions are met:
  • they're on a hobby lot, a secret vacation lot, a non-business community lot, or on a lot they live on,
  • their nature enthusiasm is at least 4 points or their predistinated hobby is nature,
  • in case they're vampires, it's night.
This mod does not require Seasons to work properly.

If you use the binoculars part of BartekStu's Less Apparition, choose the lessApparition version and make sure it loads after BartekStu's mod. In other cases, choose the ordinary version. Use only one version at a time.

4 Jul 2021: Added a lessApparition version compatible with BartekStu's Less Apparition.
21 Jul 2020: The birdwatching interaction no longer appears when you click on a currently played Sim.
Do not use with:This mod can be used with but must load after:
  • Anti Fly Catching by Pescado – the insect-related features of Pescado's mod will be preserved but its birdwatching autonomy rules will be replaced with this mod's rules. In case you're also using a mod changing autonomy of catching butter- and fireflies, and hunting bugs (eg. Insects Sanity), keep in mind Anti Fly Catching becomes useless;
  • The binoculars part of Less Apparition by BartekStu – see the description above.
