“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.
