Birds of the Equinox
As I write these words the Equinox for my side of the world (Honduras, specifically the capitol city Tegucigalpa) is coming to an end, I did not get to bird properly because its a work day so I only got to bird really early in the morning and a few minutes before the end of the event and all from the balcony of my second floor apartment!, but not all was lost, 18 species came to say hi even if iy was just for a while, I am grateful to have these birds even if they are the most common and not so amazing in color.
But there is something to birding that amazes me still today and that is its power to soothe and make you realize that in the end things arent that bad (even with the crisis and all), those little things like the blueish around the eyes of white winged doves, the fierceness of Clay Colored Robins defending their turf, the quiet might of vultures gliding on the heavens or the yacking of parrots in flight…those things bring peace to my mind.
Folks, keep on birding, keep searching the skies and the trees for new things and dont forget to gaze upon the majesty of your regular local birds, they all have lessons to teach us, we just need to listen to their wisdom.
Heres the list for the Equinox…enjoy and may all y´all have a wonderful Spring!!!!!
