P.L.O.W. - Birds in Flight

Part of the reason I love to be outside is because of the astounding wildlife I get to observe, especially birds. The end of the summer is a great time to catch glimpses of all types of birds getting ready to migrate to warmer places. I love bringing binoculars along when I hike so if a hawk or some geese fly overhead, I can get a closer look.

This play list is in honor or those gorgeous winged creatures. When I look up and see them, I think about what it must be like to soar overhead and gaze down at our beautiful earth. It makes me feel small in a way, and it reminds me to appreciate the important things in life.

I agree, birds are some incredible creatues. A loto f the times when I see a hawk or owl or crane flying about, I get lost in myself, imagining what it would be like to fly and to not be constricted to the ground.
