Hawks, falcons, and vultures… oh my!

Hawks, falcons, and vultures… oh my!

“Paying attention to birds, being mindful of them, is being mindful of Life itself. We seldom think of it this clearly, but sometimes, unexpectedly, we are overtaken by a sense of wonder and gratitude. Surely it is the encounter with a force much larger than ourselves that moves us.”

(G. Gibson, The Bedside book of Birds: an Avian Miscellany)

 

With gratitude for the support, encouragement, and companionship I’ve received throughout the year on this wonderful birding journey, and wishing you many blessings as we enter into this holiday season.

Deb xoxo

  1. happy belated big O birthday! i love the picture of you and your papa down at the bottom of the post. and in between i love your compendium of gorgeous big-winged birds. i’ve only seen the cooper’s hawk in my own backyard, and when he appears, the whole yard is stilled. he commands all attention as he stalks and swoops. in this season of thanks-giving, i am deeply thankful that our cyberwires have crossed. bless you much, you kindred gentle spirit….

    Gentle Hugs Pat
