The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing. – Eric Berne
I was going to write about the Ruddy – but this quote stopped me in my tracks. Suffice it to say I was delighted to see these guys – my first spotting of migrants.

And beautiful! Love your quote today too!
Beautiful pictures and interesting quote :-). I agree that when one is concerned with bird identification, it detracts from the appreciation of the visual and auditory beauty of the birds. But I find that time spent identifying birds enriches future experiences of simple bird appreciation. A bit like listening for different instruments in a piece of music.
Thanks, that’s a good perspective.
