A Happy Hobby

With my new bird hobby I find myself up early, outdoors, and hiking almost every day. This is a far cry to my days of sleeping in until 11 and sitting in the house not wanting to go out and face the world. Where I sometimes kept the curtains drawn all day because even the sunshine pissed me off.

Generally I am now out for at least 3 hours and sometimes even 7 a day. I find myself without an iPod, a friend, on my own time, on my own schedule, alone with my own thoughts and skipping through nature with a sense of happiness. It also helps that with all this walking and lugging around heavy camera equipment I am losing even more weight.

Nature and the great outdoors can do wonders for your soul, and birding gives us that opportunity to be outside more often.
