I bird everyday. In fact I would be the first to admit I'm probably addicted to birding. But besides the enjoyment of watching, identifying, and photographing birds, there are some additional benefits that are of importance. Easily reconized is the health benefit of getting outdoors daily and getting some exercise. In the process of birding I normally walk several miles, and it is in the great outdoors with lots of fresh air, and at very safe social distances. Often my quest for birds is diverted by additional wildlife sightings, which brings me great joy. Below are three examples of mammals I noticed while looking back on the first half of this month.
