Today we finish our series of autumn-themed birds with the great horned owl, a bird that suits autumn in so many ways, not only in its colors, but in its associations with Halloween celebrations. What better bird to honor and study this week!
With falling leaves, spooky trees and Halloween, October is associated with owls, and what better inspiration for our Wednesday Smile? Whooo’s ready to laugh?
Sometimes weeks are just too long, but a smile can help you make it through those long and tedious days when you’d rather be out birding (or doing just about anything else). Even if you love your work – and I’m fortunate to enjoy mine – there are always tasks you’d rather avoid, issues you don’t want to confront and motivation that just seems missing.
