Since I've only been officially birding since early last summer I have yet to experience the full glory of SPRING. Since the weather has started to warm up a bit I'm noticing new birds appearing (or returning) daily. I wish I could take a 2-3 month break from work so I can fully appreciate all the changes that are going to start happening.
Although I am eagerly awaiting spring, I'm sad to see the winter birds go. I haven't enjoyed winter so much since I was a kid. I'm trying to sneak a few more glimpses of the winter birds left while I seek out the new spring arrivals. It's quite an interesting transition time. I love it. You never know what you'll see when you head out for the day.
I've never had trouble finding something to do...Cycling,tennis, creating something out of stained glass are a few things I enjoy. Recently I've added birding to the list and suspect it will become a lifelong hobby.
