Getting ready

A few weeks ago, several nature bloggers wrote about the book Finding Your Wings.

I ordered a copy to help me with my beginning birding skills and am finding it very helpful in learning observation techniques. Now, if some birds would just fly by my snow bound corner of the world, I could practice.

Today I head to the coast to do some work but will take along my book, binoculars and camera just in case there is more to see and time to see it.

You are going to need to get rid of the snow before we can let them come home. Some are flying, but others are traveling in RVs. I saw a goodly number yesterday as I was walking.

The birds are arriving here in spite of the the snow. (We had 3" of new snow yesterday) I am a novice birder and must say, the most important thing I have learned in the last year is where to look for birds. Now I see many species frequently that I previously wouldn't have noticed. The book looks interesting. I put it on my Amazon wish list.

I do look forward to your daily thoughts :) How wonderful that you'll be out there with your binoculars to observe the wildlife. I just have to imagine it from my apartment...

I hope your books help you, Beth. I have several field guides and other related books and they have helped me tremendously, as I'm a beginner, too.

The best way to know the birds is to go out and see them - every day. That's hard to do when we're so busy.

Good luck on your birding. I have an old field guide that was my Mom's. It is helpful, but would like a newer one with more detail.
