There are always things that I could be doing or should be doing when I'm stomping around fields watching birds. 90% of the time getting my weekend dose of nature takes priority. I'll squeeze in taking care of responsibilities with whatever time is left.
Occasionally there comes a time when I become too distracted thinking about what I should be doing to enjoy birding. That is the time to put the binoculars and camera back in the drawer and get to work knowing
That has been the case so far in the month of July. It feels good to get things done so I can get back out in the field with a clear conscience.
