You guys have it nice
I was visiting my family in North Carolina this past week, and their backyard (with feeders) backs up against a pine/deciduous mixed woods. Insane amounts of bird activity, and I didn't even have to hide, just sat in a lawn chair and snapped away. So relaxing and fun not having to stalk through the woods hoping to see a bird for a change. Along with that, got a few hours on the beaches and marshes around Charleston, SC... birding paradise. It'd be amazing to have access to those environments on a regular basis.
Back to the normal grind
Life is good .... Matt. And yes.. it’s very amazing at times.
