In The Center Of Nature
We still have some time to go but it's beginning to really feel like spring at times. Even when the days are cloudy it doesn't seem quite as dark as it did when winter was in full swing. Most of our days there is at least a few hours of sunshine now. And anyone in the United States who likes our favorite warm weather sport, baseball, knows that spring training season has started, so baseball is almost back.
Baseball is maybe a better sign of spring here than seeing a spring robin. Especially since I've been showing you robins all winter long. But we're not really here to talk about baseball, mostly, but we're here to talk about this little bird in the picture. As I said yesterday, I'm pretty sure it's a kind of sparrow, and it appears to be a house sparrow, but I'm still new to identifying sparrows.
You can sit on your porch or even look out your window to see nature or wild animals. I like going out to the wilderness to do my nature watching most of the time, but it's not necessary for nature watching. I would bet there are at least birds flying around the largest cities in the world. Even with all of those tall buildings you can find yourself right in the center of nature. Nature is everywhere. It's up to you to see it.
