A New Habit

Location: Santa Elena, Yucatán, Mexico

Now that I have started the practice, I am getting hooked on doing daily bird counts. Birdwatching is becoming more and more like meditation. Before it was going simply for the images and the thrill of the identification. Now I am coming to appreciate the nuances of the individual birds. How they sit, how they fly, how they preen, how long do they stay in one place.
