The great thing about enjoying birds is that we can experience that joy just about anywhere we go! Even if we’re shut indoors at a meeting or conference, we can simply pick the seat next to the window and find our avian friends.

In his chapter in the book Good Birders Still Don’t Wear White, author and birder Noah Strycker wrote,

The beauty of birds is that they are everywhere, from the deepest wilderness to the most crowded inner cities.

And the great thing about being a Christian is that we can engage with our Creator anywhere we are! Whether we are admiring his handiwork on a nature hike, lifting up his name in organized worship, or slipping into a closet during a stressful day at work to call upon his name, our God is ever-present.

In the book of Psalms, David wrote,

If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. Psalm 139:8-10

Just like the birds, “from the deepest wilderness to the most crowded cities,” our God is there!

Hi, I’m wildlife photographer and nature writer William Wise. I was saved under a campus ministry while studying wildlife biology at the University of Georgia. My love of the outdoors quickly turned into a love for the Creator and His works. I’m currently an animal shelter director and live in Athens, Georgia with my wife and two teenage daughters, who are all also actively involved in ministry. Creation Speaks is my teaching ministry that glorifies our Creator and teaches the truth of creation. William Wise Nature Notes is my wildlife and birding photo blog documenting the beauty, design and wonder of God’s creation. I am also a guest author at Lee’s Birdwatching Adventures and The Creation Club . -- "What a wildly wonderful world, God! You made it all, with Wisdom at Your side, made earth overflow with your wonderful creations." Psalms 104, The Message.
