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.
I've been away from blogging for awhile as I enjoyed a 10-day pseudo-retirement cruise in the Caribbean. Today's Wings on Wednesday image of a Tri-colored Heron in Cockburn Town Grand Turk will kick off a series of posts about my cruise.
It wasn't a birding cruise, so I'll be sharing images of birds but also of other wildlife we encountered (wild and otherwise), plus some of the excursion fun we enjoyed.
Our ship, the Costa Atlantica, took us to Key West FL - Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos - Grand Cayman - Ocho Rios, Jamaica - Roatan, Honduras - Cozumel, Mexico. Stay tuned and join me on a journey through the Caribbean!
