At Spring Bird we believe in following our curiosity - especially with regards to nature, but we realize that most of us don’t have the time or energy to jump down rabbit holes of information on the internet or comb through books at the library to find the answers we are looking for to our nagging questions.
In our family, however, when we have a question we are quite lazy and always go to Pat. He loves research and is uniquely gifted at finding that needle of information that you have been searching for in a haystack of misdirections. I have grown so accustomed to nonchalantly dropping a breadcrumb or two . . . “I wonder if it is easier to yadda yadda etc.”
I won’t even finish my question when Pat snatches a computer and starts searching. For larger projects, he returns home from the library with armloads of books, which he reads, taking meticulous notes by hand and later types into documents.
So, we have been talking about how he could put his gift to good use while fulfilling our mission of Spring Bird, “to deepen our relationships with nature”, and we came up with a project where you, our readers, could submit your questions to him. He will research them and answer them to the best of his ability.
Answers will be written in the form of a blog post so that the information will continue to spread.
So, readers, what have you been wondering about your garden, your landscape, and your environment? What are curious about? Migratory species - weeds- insects - skunks - forest gardening - forest bathing?
Send your questions to email@example.com, and Pat will start digging for answers!!!
