“In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.” ~Robert Wilson Lynd
I haven’t done it in a while, but one of my favorite things used to be take a knapsack full Peterson Field Guides out in the woods and see what I could find.
I realized pretty early on that I didn’t need to go traipsing near and far, all I had to do was sit still. In only a few minutes, the birds and insects either forgot I was there or no longer saw me as a threat, and began to reveal themselves.
