Description

Mindful Thoughts for Birdwatchers brings us closer to the birds we share the world with.
 
Part of the Mindful Thoughts series, this beautifully illustrated little book meditates on all aspects of birdwatching, including:
  • City birds
  • The magic of birdsong
  • The art of looking and listening
  • Flock behaviour
  • The migration cycle
  • …and much more
Noticing and appreciating the awesome nature of birdlife is a spiritually affirming activity – reconnecting us to the natural world, even if seen only from our window or back garden. From the sight of birds heading to roost at sunset to the delight of birdsong at dawn, there are moments every day when being aware of the avian life around us is inspiring and rewarding.

In 25 focused reflections, author Adam Ford shares observations on bird habits and qualities, including the delicate genius of the feather, the flight of the swallow and the intricacies of birds’ nests, reminding us of the wonders of our feathered friends.
