Powers of Observation - Buzzards in a Tree

Buzzards in a Tree

Our powers of observation can be challenged by many situations. If we focus on the big picture, we often miss the details which may be important to our survival. One of the ways you can improve your powers of observation is to know the habits of the creatures you are observing. This is especially important when developing good hunting skills. It is vitally important to know your prey and their habits.

Whether it's a deer or a dove, every creature has a unique set of habits that can help you to better understand what you are seeing when using your powers of observation. It's not always a silhouette or a color that will help you understand what you are observing. Training your mind to factor in the habits of different creatures will often make them easier to observe.

Here's a little test for your powers of observation. See how many buzzards you can find in the picture above. In order to make it a little easier, here's a hint for you. Buzzards often congregate in large groups of a dozen or more more birds. Sometimes the groups are larger and sometimes they are smaller. Keep this in mind when trying to count the buzzards in the tree.

Got buzzards in a tree?

Staying above the water line!

Actually, there are eleven in the pic by my count. There were probably more in the trees but couldn't get them all in the picture. Several of them are pretty hard to spot.

Thanks michael.
