I never really noticed birds until I moved to live in the city and then it was the yearning to see the birds I would take for granted in my old house- the bulbuls, the kingfishers, the coucals and others. I relearnt to observe them and enjoy them over the course of the years. I’m nowhere close to being an avid birder but at least I know that often I have to stop, stare and observe- you never know who is hiding in the nearest tree.
