Birdsong and Rustling Leaves

December 22, 2014

Birds were not my friends as a child. For some reason birdsong in my backyard was an annoyance. I knew how to distinguish a handful of birds from one another, but they simply held no fascination. Reptiles were much more interesting. In hindsight, I think it was the call of the Northern Cardinal – possibly awakening me in the early hours – that caused my mild disdain. So how did I arrive at this point where birding brings me such joy?
