Painted Bunting! I will never get tired of these!
I get it, you’re a busy person. You have work, you have school, you have a reality tv show in which you influence society in a major way (shoutout @kyliejenner
). The sad thing is that a lot of people use that as an excuse. In life, there is no room for excuses. You have to find a way. Don’t be afraid to get a mental workout in addition to your physical one. I’m against violence towards animals, but kill two birds with one stone here (once again, metaphorical, please protect the birds). Pump those guns, but be sure to pump that mind as well. Read a book, finish up some paperwork, heck, yesterday I played a little bit of a sudoku. Love that game almost as much as I love fitness. But I’m rambling. With all the time you’ll save from this #fitnessHack
, who know what you can accomplish? The world is yours. #fitness #fitFam #regularFam #birds #stone #scholarly #protectTheBirds #multiTask #gym

'' John J. Audubon! It was almost 200 years ago that Audubon published Birds of America, a book describing 453 North American birds, each of which he painted with remarkable accuracy. Little did Audubon know that with this, he would be making ornithological history—Audubon societies started popping up across the United States, and in 1901, @audubonsociety
groups around the country joined together in a loose national organization, which helped to establish the first U.S. national wildlife refuge, Florida’s Pelican Island, in 1903. Today @audubonsociety
is a potent force dedicated to the protection of birds, and we’re proud of our long-lasting partnership with the organization. With the Trump administration’s reckless attempts to roll back laws that safeguard these magical creatures, birds need our help more than ever. #yearofthebird #birdyourworld #protectthebirds #audubon #birds #birding #nature
Don’t refuse to go in a wild goose chase,that’s what wild geese are for.
