Daniel, my challenge is bird song. I'm quite good at observing differences in behavior, shape, and flight but it's those songs that get me. I identify DIFFERENCES in songs/calls, but then have trouble identifying it!

Barbara - start that yard list! It's fun to do! Merry Christmas to you as well.

Birding is fun and easy that anyone can start by watching the birds in their yard and local parks. As one becomes more engaged as you are. We begin to draw on the experiences we've accumulated and shared. Learning familiar birding sounds, their silhouettes, behaviour and flying patterns to name a few. Challenges remain and that in itself is one of the many reasons we remain drawn to birding.


Love that you keep on trying Nancy - I've never counted how many birds I've seen and/or identified, perhaps I should start... sounds like fun.

Merry Christmas to you and yours... love your blog!

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
