Read my new article about birds for CBC

CBC asked me to write an article for them about how birding has helped me and others during the pandemic and other difficult times.

I hope you enjoy it, you can read it HERE

Birding can help you to cope through the hardest times in life - Photo of a Yellow-headed Blackbird by Melissa Hafting 


  1. Congrats on the article! I thought it was fantastic!

  2. Another very timely article. It reminds of shinrin-yoku ( forest bathing ). Just getting out an enjoying what nature has to offer is so therapeutic. Quietly birding does bring a sense of focus which allows " all that other stuff" to fade away for at least a little while.

    1. thank you so much for sharing ken. it is true when you are out birding you can forget about a lot of the troubles of today's world and boy do we all need a break sometimes.
