I don't (s)pish but I do talk to birds such as a robin which comes to the feeders while I am filling them and to ducks in the park. One of those laughing/quacking noises seems to calm them when walking near them.

Being a birder is a blessing, rather than a curse.

 

You never get bored. Being a "big 5-er" must be a terrible curse.

 

Being a spider-er is even better as you can keep yourself entertained long after the sun goes down and all the diurnal birds have gone to sleep (yes yes I'm aware of nocturnal birds - but they're not nearly as numerous or conspicuous as spiders)

 

I always think, "anyone who can't appreciate the beauty of a malachite kingfisher, the majesty of a crowned eagle, or the sheer horror of a marabou stork shouldn't bother coming on safari"
