A Red-bellied Woodpecker

Birding comes with all kinds of rewards — and many lessons about nature, the environment, the need for silence, and about our place in the world. Flying Lessons is devoted to exploring this terrain and sharing what we’re learning from the birds.

We’d love to hear from you. Click here for a comment form so you can leave thoughts, questions or your own birding lessons.

Once again, thanks very much for your visit.
