I always tell people to open their eyes and ears, but close their mouth when out and about in the woods. Listen to the wild world around them, the birds and animals can tell you things. I heard a very angry Cooper’s Hawk above me. It took many minutes of scanning the leaf cover in the trees, and spotting the Hawk leaving branches to attack something else up there. Still more minutes passed, scanning with my bins when I finally spotted a Barred Owl in an opening of the leaves. Much later that day, as dusk approached, I was able to return to the area, and I relocated the Owl once again, on a lower branch, having a peaceful moment without the angry Hawk disturbing him.
