The Birds are Back in Town

Spring is the season of love; mating season for birds. Without leaves on any of the deciduous trees and shrubs, it is much easier to spot bird activity. Because it is breeding season, the birds’ plumage is at its brightest. While these birds are attracting a mate, we get to see the show. Although the best time to spot birds is typically dawn and dusk, you can still see many species throughout the day.

Get a good pair of binoculars and spend a few minutes in the morning looking to see what feathered creatures are visiting the neighborhood. I still manage to see blue birds, which are very prevalent in our backfield even during the rainy season. Take advantage before the leaves come out to spot some impressive species. As birds migrate through the area, be on the lookout for the unusual sighting.
The inspirational thought for the day is by Robert Lynd. “In order to see birds it is necessary to become part of the silence.” Listen for the songs and the birds that sing them.
