Springtime means birds and birdwatchers become more active. The days are longer, the weather is warmer, and the breeding season starts, making birds more visible even if you don’t own a pair of binoculars. And new bird encounters inspire more people, who sometimes are willing to share their experiences on Medium.

Here are three subjectively chosen articles that I’ve particularly enjoyed during the previous month. Enjoy!

Splish, Splash, a Hummingbird Taking a Bath by Erika Burkhalter

A short piece focused around one photograph — I’m including it here maybe because I have no chance to see a hummingbird where I live, and they seem like a colorful bubble of joy.

MY WEEKEND BUDDY…. by Nikhil Pradip More

Photos taken by Nikhil deserve a shout-out, especially when you’re trying to spot such an evasive and well-camouflaged species like the Indian eagle owl.
