Birding is one of my more recently acquired hobbies.  I find it to be an excellent motivation to develop patience and observation skills.  Along the way in your birding journeys, you will encounter many people, problems and perspectives. This is a hobby where the scientific, the material and the spiritual all come together, where you alternately see each bird as a separate entity to be identified and checked off, yet you can never ignore the biosphere as a whole.
