Bird Sit at Mason Center with Peggy Steffens

Trip duration 1.5- 2 hours

Take a break from your busy life with a Bird Sit at Tucson Audubon’s Mason Center.  A bird sit is like an outdoor meditation with a focus on birds. The benefits include relaxation, quieting the mind and cultivating a deeper connection to the birds.  This field trip is not about labeling and listing the birds, but about slowing down and truly observing the birds. You will need to bring a chair. We will start with a guided meditation to awaken your senses. Then we will sit in silence for about 30 – 45 minutes at the feeders and tune into the birds through deeper listening and observation practices. After the bird sit, we will come back together and discuss the experience and learn how to develop a mindful birding practice that will help you fine-tune your birding skills for the future. Come experience birding from a different perspective.

This is a weather dependent event. This field trip is all about calming your mind and awakening your senses. Due to the mindful nature and slower pace, in the unfortunate event of poor weather, we may cancel this event. Be sure to check your email leading up to the event. Your field trip leader will make sure everyone is up-to-date on the latest information.
