While bird watching is enjoyed best in warmer seasons, that’s not to say that there aren’t some regional species that you can spot during the winter as well. In Western Florida, you can spot Snailkites, Limpkins and even Woodstorks. The Adirondacks are another great location to catch waterfowl and songbirds of all types playing near large bodies of water. Rhode Island is also ripe with Mallards, flocks of Pintails and American Black Ducks in protected bays and marshes. Needless to say, your range of options for spotting some sweet wildlife are pretty wide no matter where you are. Though you won’t be catching many migrations, you’re sure to get lucky to spot a few birds on a feed mission or simply exploring.
With the New Year kicking off, everybody is planning how to tackle their resolutions. For some, eating healthier is on the list, for others, it’s hitting more trails and lakes than the year prior.
Any resolution is a good one so long as you seek to improve yourself - but how about expanding the skillset of the adventurer and paddler you’ve become?
Being a “minimalist” can mean a couple things, especially when it comes to organizing your home. Some minimalists cut down on unnecessary commodities in lieu of some extra space, but still have thousands of dollars in outdoor gear shacked up in some closet bursting at the seams. If that sounds like you - you’re not alone.
