A Nature Break For Our Caregivers

As caregivers ourselves, we at NurseMotherCaregiver know how difficult it can be to find time and ways to relax and take care of ourselves. We hope this virtual visit to nature will give you a little respite and delight, when you don’t have a chance to enjoy nature for real.

Bird is the word!!
Please join me on my nature walks as I take you through the four seasons of the Northeastern U.S.
My goal is to try to express the fun and benefits of getting out for healthy walks and being greeted by wonderful birds and wildlife.
My dream is that you will be inspired, as I was several years ago, to grab a pair of binoculars or a camera. I never looked back and it has helped my physical and mental health. My knowledge of birds has certainly improved in a short time and so can yours!
I plan to write to you frequently with my ongoing birding adventures. In addition, I'm planning to do extra entries to go in depth on past photos and experiences as well as highlight facts and information about individual species of birds to keep things interesting.
So, please check back often!
Please use this email info@nursemothercaregiver.com to send me your questions and to ask me for any/all bird identifications you come across on your adventures!
Whether you are new to this or experienced, if you'd like your bird stories to appear in my blog I welcome that too! Send 'em my way! Let’s have some fun and go birding together!!     ~ G.S. Wedders

 

**Blog Update 10/2/17** I'm so happy and excited to announce we have a huge upgrade to the 'Bird Is The Word' blog!  'The Beauty of Birding' by Rachelle Vaughn has its first post included below! Reading about birds of the west coast of the United States is such a treat, and a much needed and enjoyed contrast to my Eastern U.S sightings! I'm so blown away by her writing and photographs and you will be too!! Here's the link! https://nursemothercaregiver.com/beauty-birding-rachelle-vaughn/

Another double whammy!! Do you remember the t.v. game show ‘Press Your Luck?’ The contestants would be screaming ‘no whammy, no whammy’ knowing that a whammy would bring their score all the way back down to zero. They didn’t want a whammy, well as a birder, I have had three double whammy’s back to back […]

Double whammy!! My last trip out for an amazing Scissor-tailed Flycatcher lifer resulted in also seeking and finding a second lifer nearby, A Virginia Rail! That’s pretty ridiculous and I’d have been thrilled to see even just one of those great birds. While I was out chasing those birds a bit east, there was a […]
