Why watch birds?


Because they look beautiful, and sometimes sound wonderful - the Song Thrush in full song, and the Stonechat in full garb.

Makes up for the time spent looking at (or for) birds out at sea or on the mudflats.

I love the stark nature of these photos and the beautiful moments you captured in them. That's why I watch birds...for the wonder God created in them. They are so fascinating, even when you see the same ones over and over again.

A very beautiful singing bird photo capture and it brings to mind an ancient Chinese proverb; "If you keep a green bough in your heart, a singing bird will come."

Thanks for those lovely sentiments.....I'll try to remember the proverb through the spring.

In winter it could be changed to 'If you keep a feeder in your heart, a hungry bird will come'.
