#11 Field Tip: Stop-Look-Listen

I have found that when out birding with friends or in group outings, be mindful of the amount of noise that you are making. We see and hear the most while walking quietly. Idle chatter reduces our powers of observation and alerts wildlife to our presence.

The sounds of nature are all around us, and we will be able to absorb them better if we talk less, pause often, and listen more.
