Birding is lame right? Resetting my local SA bird list was one of the best things I’ve done in recent years. I’m currently on 281 and hoping to get to around 600 in my lifetime.
Truth is, if I don’t get near that it’s ok. What non-birders don’t realize is seeing a sought-after bird is a fraction of the fun. It’s all about the adventure trying.
It gets us researching and learning. It gets us planning and traveling. It gets us outside and exercising. It get us together with old friends, sharing stories of recent twitches.
There are so many similarities to chasing waves that it’s no surprise so many surfers appreciate birding too.
