Thank you, Edge, for your wisdom on taking a closer look at ourselves as
others see us.  I would like to add that the doldrum days of winter are an
excellent time to also learn to 'hear' the birds.  Start with the tapes
available, then sit in your own backyard, close your eyes, and become
familiar with those birds you see all the time, but maybe wouldn't recognize
by hearing their call alone.  It's amazing how many different songs a
Carolina Wren will sing!  When spring comes, and you 'put your ears on',
there is NEW JOY to experience when you hear something 'different', and
realize that 'pleased, pleased, pleased to meet you' is a Chestnut-sided
Warbler, come to visit!
