The First Law of Birding: The greater the time spent searching for a rarity, the greater the chances it will be sitting on your car when you return to the parking lot.
The Second Law of Birding: There are two sides of a tree; the side facing you and the side where the bird is.
The Third Law of Birding: When you see the bird that you have always wanted to see, it will be in the last spot you thought of looking for it.
The Fourth Law of Birding: The best bird seen during a trip is usually seen in bad light, isn't calling or singing, is seen for less than a second, and is the last "trip bird".
