This date requires a little bit of planning, but it is sure to help you slow down and enjoy a part of God’s creation you may take for granted.
Fall Date #11
Take a Drive on a Birding Trail Near You
Did you know that there are hundreds of marked roads for observing birds across America? The American Birding Association has been working hard to link up those who are interested in bird watching with the best areas in which to find them. If you click on the link it will take you to a listing of all the trails available state by state.
Here’s all you need to do to make this a day you can enjoy together:
- Pack a picnic
- Bring your camera and a set or two of binoculars
- Buy or check out from your library a book on local birds in your area.
- Chart the route you would like to follow.
You don’t have to be a fanatic about watching birds, but it can be a fun date to do something out of the ordinary for a change. Who knows? You may discover a new hobby!
“Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?”
(Matthew 6:26 ESV)
Have you ever gone birding before? If so, what was your favorite part of the experience?
