The Joys of Bird Watching

birdBy Scott Ervin

When my wife Glenda asked me to write an article about why I am a bird watcher, I realized I didn’t know why. I have enjoyed feeding birds and watching them for decades, but I had never thought about why I enjoy it so much.

It’s safe to say I’m a fanatical bird watcher. I set up a bird feeding station at each the places I’ve lived since my mother pushed me out of the nest shortly after high school. (16 places so far). I’ve kept a record of all the different species spotted at each of these places. I just completed drawings for a critter-proof bird feeding station I plan to build that looks a lot like the board game Mouse Trap. I really don’t want to know how much money I‘ve spent on bird food.

I remember my maternal grandfather always saying, “Plant your peas on St Patrick’s Day.” March the 17th in Northeastphoto2 Ohio can be a very cold, wintry, blustery day. Not the case this year – it was sunny and 55 degrees when I got home from work.  Just ten days ago there were still piles of snow on the ground and I still had Christmas lights on the flagpole making a tree effect with lights.

My family has always been gardeners, and I married a farmer who has taught me even more the stewardship of the land, the love of agriculture and how important it is to all of us. Earlier in the day I thought of the planting and ran at my lunch break to purchase seeds.
