This occasional feature highlights 3 blog posts from the past month (February) that exemplify the Zen nature lessons of Attention, Acceptance, and Responsibility. I encourage you to take a moment to enjoy these thoughtful posts.
In "An Acre Saved Is An Acre Earned", Larry of The Brownstone Birding Blog tells of his visit to a park that he almost passed by. "When I came upon the location of the park, I realized that it was nothing more than an insignificant little mud hole of a pond that I had passed by so many times over the years. I almost turned around and left the minute I saw it." Read on about his lesson in zen attention, concluding with "It's amazing what you can see when you slow down long enough to look."
Because I didn't find a zen acceptance post, I'll highlight another Attention post. "Not all Red Birds are Cardinals" at Behind the Bins provides a good lesson in paying closer attention to that red streak!
Amber over at Birder's Lounge wants to know what conservation-minded things you've done lately in her "Do Something! Campaign" post. She's made it easy for us too!
