Fellow birder here!
Ginny

I have a feeder and watch the birds all day….
Szwajkowski Family
48:16
had my kids fill up the bird feeder earlier
Rebecca
49:22
hope squirrels count...because they have taken over the feeders over here.
Brenda Garcia
49:32
What if Someone is TOO ATTENTIVE??? It becomes "too much", no?
Lydia Smith
49:50
Saw a pileated woodpecker yesterday, and a kinglet today!
Nancy Brown
49:55
Rebecca—squirrels count if you name them :-)
Jon Wright
50:38
I think Pieper's attentiveness is more of a state of mind than concentraton @Brenda
Lisa_2
50:51
We have a bird's nest on our porch
Brenda Garcia
51:14
thanks for clarifying that! :)
Rebecca
51:50
Nancy, we must be of the same mind...there are several repeat visitors that are indeed named!
Jon Wright
51:51
yup! :)
Lydia Smith
52:52
Hi, Jon!
Jon Wright
53:01
Hey!
Amy

How's that falcon training going? :)
Grettelyn

hi all
Jon Wright

Nancy Brown
54:07
Hi Grettelyn!!
Trip
54:13
I arrived late - did Mr. Kerr explain why he's broadcasting from a wooden submarine?
Grettelyn
54:29
hi Nancy! 😊
Nancy Brown
54:30
He’s in a tiny house on his property
Lydia Smith
54:35
No, no, no, it's a chicken coop.
Annmarie Hart
54:58
HALFWAY to the chicken coop
Annmarie Hart
55:02
lol
Jon Wright
55:28
Passer domesticus!!
Lydia Smith
55:32
Does that make it a halfway house?
Grettelyn
56:16
just thought I should mention, I spent all day yesterday adapting The Blue Cross as an audio play. in between scenes, I got to watch the orioles in the field behind our house. :)
Anne Roundtree
57:09
spring training?
Francine Fosselman
57:15
a European swallow? or an African swallow?
Nancy Brown
57:17
So cool, Grettelyn—my fav Fr. Brown and my FAVORITE BIRD!!
Grettelyn
57:25
😊❤️
Nancy Brown
57:32
Francine—I believe he means a HOUSE Sparrow
Lydia Smith
57:45
Is it laden or unladen?
Jon Wright
57:46
yup
Grettelyn
57:57
we’re hoping to live-stream it on May 1. I’ll let you know the time
Kurt Carter

Oooo thanks!
Rebecca
58:22
Benedict XVI … love that quote!
Grettelyn
58:30
what’s your favorite color? to the swallow hecklers
Kurt Carter
01:00:53
you have to know these things when you are king
Szwajkowski Family
01:01:28
there is a law written in the darkest of the Books of Life, and it is this: If you see a thing nine hundred and ninety-nine times, you are perfectly safe; if you look at it the thousandth time, you are in danger of seeing it again for the first time. “The Napoleon of Notting Hill” - GK Chesterton - who else? perfect book for these times
Nancy Brown
01:01:52
So true, Darren!
Linda
01:01:55
The discussion of attentiveness makes me think of a lecture that I attended at the auditorium of a university in D.C. The lecturer, a well known actor, had those of us in the audience to be a teenager trying to convince parents to triple the allowance given. After the exercise was done, he asked us what was the color of the person's eyes? What color was the person's hair? What kind of clothes was the person wearing? He talked about how he used to focus on his questions when he hosted a science program. He found that he was a more effective interviewer when he quit focusing on himself and actually listened to what the person was talking about.
Grettelyn
01:02:04
question for Dan: I’ve been told you shouldn’t name animals that you’re going to slaughter. how do you feel about that when it comes to the pigs? do you believe that it’s good to befriend an animal you intend to eat?
John Hissong Cleveland
01:02:51
A related exercise: get a field guide to trees and try to identify the trees in your neighborhood you walk by everyday.
Grettelyn
01:03:53
Tolkien said that trees are your friends
John Paul Roche
01:03:59
*Applause*
Annmarie Hart
01:04:04
Thank you!
Steve Strickland

Annmarie Hart
01:04:11
That was excellent!
Stephen Lajoie

Robert McQuin
01:04:22
Well said, sir!
Ani
01:04:25

Grettelyn
01:04:27
hi dad! (bob Darkey)
Rebecca
01:04:33
Such a great talk!
Patricia Bernbom
01:04:45
Wonderful!!! Thank you!
Kendra Posch
01:04:47
Don’t forget to pop your questions into the chat box!
Amy
01:04:50
while I have become more adept at identifying birds by sight, I would love to learn to identify them by song.
Anthony Stewart
01:05:00
👍
Bob Darkey
01:05:04
Hi Gret..(It’s Mom on dad’s zoom account)
Grettelyn
01:05:14
❤️
Lydia Smith
01:05:21
Audobon website. ALL the bird songs.
Nancy Brown
01:06:00
Several apps that are free: Audubon, ebird, and Merlin Bird ID are all helpful
John Hissong Cleveland
01:06:10
Greetings to Grettelyn and Vicki from Cleveland. I love trees. I’d plant a redwood in my front yard if I could get away with it.
Amy
01:06:12
Thank you, Lydia! You share my daughter's name. :-)
Jon Wright
01:06:17
Mr. Kerr, here's a question (a la Dr. Fahey): do you think that man is a part of nature? And to what extent do we need nature to maintain our vitality (a la Thoreau)?
Nancy Brown
01:06:23
Audubon app has a ton of audio files to help you learn their songs
Jon Wright
01:06:30
(or two questions)
Amy
01:06:43
Thank you, Nancy! I will look that up.
Kendra Posch
01:07:01
Got them, Jon!
Amy
01:07:14
Yes, please convince me to send my son. :-)
Lydia Smith
01:08:07
Are there any girl's schools of this caliber?
Jon Wright
01:08:20
Oakcrest?
Dylan
01:08:30
One of my favorite homilies was when Fr. Mark from St Benedict Abbey compared T.S. Elliot's naming of cats to the naming of Mary "full of grace." Want to chew on that a little?
Lydia Smith
01:09:01
Don't know much about Oakcrest. Where is it?
Lisa_2
01:09:03
Icons of saints can be attended to with great interest
Jon Wright
01:09:08
I think Va
Amy
01:09:09
I've never looked. My girls usually are not causing me to pull my hair out. ;-)
Jon Wright
01:09:16
I've only heard of it
Lydia Smith
01:09:39
As the TMC freshmen are well aware. :)
Jon Wright
01:09:56
hehe
Lydia Smith
01:09:58
THE HARMAS!
Bob Darkey
01:10:04
In learning names of things, we learn to see the order in creation
Annmarie Hart
01:10:10
Seeing something beautiful ought to invoke the desire to share that beauty and I think and expresion of this is poetry. Also, music, art, photography, etc
Jon Wright
01:10:11
*cue frecn sounds
Jon Wright
01:10:18
*french
Tyler Worthy
01:10:25
Question for Dan: Is attentiveness synonymous (or nearly synonymous) with contemplation? Thank you!
Jon Wright
01:11:21
They have us do this at TMC. I recommend it as well
Lydia Smith
01:11:32
Question: Would, then, the naming of a thing create a sense of ownership, and therefore a sense of some responsibility?
Jon Wright
01:11:52
Ooh, ^^
Szwajkowski Family
01:11:59
had a cardinal come on the ledge in the morning in front of the window over the sink- it torments the cats
Patricia Bernbom
01:12:39
Like Noah, the power to name the animals.
Jon Wright
01:13:06
Yes, but also like the ancient Judeo-Christian belief
Jon Wright
01:13:34
That knowing someone's name gives you power over them
Jon Wright
01:13:44
Think Christ and the demons in Mark
Annmarie Hart
01:13:46
One is more the physical and the other is the effect on the person?
Lydia Smith
01:13:47
That wasn't my question, Jon, it was my mom's.
KDG

Letting be what is!
Leah Wathira
01:14:39
Does living in a highly built area with few opportunities for nature watching affect our sense of wonder and how can we nurture it?
Stephen Lajoie
01:14:46
I think much of what we are dealing with now is humanities attempt to control
Grettelyn
01:15:08
love that poem
Jon Wright
01:15:14
Oh hey Stephen!
Jon Wright
01:15:20
How is NH?
Lydia Smith
01:15:44
Ste[hen!
Stephen Lajoie
01:15:48
Hi! Better than most places, even if the weather has been rather odd lol
Lydia Smith
01:15:52
Stephen. *Hen*
Nancy Brown
01:15:53
Leah—binoculars! There are probably birds flying around you which you might make friends with :-)
Lydia Smith
01:15:56
Nevermind.
Adam Taylor
01:16:11
From Poetic Knowledge, quoting Senior, “…the higher you go into abstraction, the clearer your understanding gets, that is your intellectus; but the less your knowledge gets.
Lydia Smith
01:16:14
I just can't type.
Carmenchu
01:16:20
Which is the poem recommended by Joseph Pierece?
KDG
01:16:32
shelter in place...term comes from an intruder in a school...
Annmarie Hart
01:16:38
Yes

Acedia: “a sort of heavy sadness . . . that presses down on a man’s mind in such a way that no activity pleases him.” —St. Thomas Aquinas
Richard
01:18:01
Isn't attentiveness a form of contemplation?
Brenda Garcia
01:18:20
I'm going to listen to this talk again!! Soo good!!:)
John Hissong Cleveland
01:18:23
The study of history, in my experience, often leads to the virtue of gratitude. The study of science, in my experience, often leads to the virtue of wonder. (Chesterton had both.) Most scientists that I know, of all stripes, have a deep undercurrent of wonder. My advisor in high energy physics considered that his multi-year, multi-million dollar experiments were a way of asking God how he created the universe.
Robert McQuin
01:18:51
Certainly a measure of attentiveness is required in order to contemplate…
Nancy Brown
01:19:05
For Chesterton’s poetry, see Collected Works Volume Ten Parts I, II, and III all fantastic
Jon Wright
01:19:40
yess

grey squirrels are the pigeons of the tree rat family
Stephen Lajoie
01:21:52
Let's call the whole thing off ;)
David
01:22:00
they're just rats with fancy tails
Linda
01:22:01
I don't have a bird feeder in my yard, but I love seeing the birds that fly around here. Seeing nature around me lifts my spirits.
Anne Roundtree
01:22:24
we’re two peoples separated by a common language
Francine Fosselman
01:22:40
whoosh! yup! that's the right answer!
Nancy Brown
01:22:41
If you can’t have a feeder because you live in an apartment, they actually have bird feeders with suction cups which work great and bring the birds in close
John Paul Roche
01:22:44
Chris can't ask questions, he can only answer them. That's why he's president of Catholic Answers.
Jon Wright
01:22:53
hahaha
Lydia Smith
01:22:56
The bore is usually a very interesting person. He is only boring to others.
Grettelyn
01:23:04
dad joke!
Stephen Lajoie
01:23:16
That is true!
Stephen Lajoie
01:23:20
I've seen the scans
Carmenchu
01:23:29
Is it possible to download the Chat comments?
Annmarie Hart
01:23:30
WOW
Nancy Brown
01:23:48
Carmenchu, you can close your chat box if it’s distracting
Stephen Lajoie
01:23:57
You could highlight, copy, and paste
Linda
01:24:10
There isn't much on television that's worth watching. That's why I tend to watch programs on EWTN.
Nancy Brown
01:24:20
Oops—you said download! Sorry! I believe the comments get recorded along with the rest of it.
John Hissong Cleveland
01:24:35
“We have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language
Rose Gawarecki
01:24:37
Carmenchu, the chat comments show up on the recording of the talk, so you can go back and read them later!
Stephen Lajoie
01:24:48
"What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?" ;)
Carmenchu
01:24:58
No, I want to get a copy of the chat
Anne Roundtree
01:26:29
Stephen: put the coconuts down
Joe Langenfeld
01:26:30
Can't you just name it "Dinner"?
Christopher Childers
01:26:37
So does that sense of openness and receptivity have to do with the medium or the mindset of the person? I’m in front of a screen right now and am engaging in deep thought with what is a fascinating presentation and discussion. But I’ve opened myself to be receptive. I don’t do that when watching a TV show, for example.
Grettelyn
01:26:37
🤣
KDG
01:27:13
Birds are friends when you know their name.
Travis Headley
01:27:13
Carmenchu, highlight and copy the chat and then paste it into a word document or something like that
Rose Gawarecki
01:27:26
Friends of mine raised pigs and named them Ham and Bacon so the kids knew right away what they were destined to become
Francine Fosselman
01:27:35
watch "Natural History of Chicken" 55-minute PBS documentary on youtube
Pablo R. R.
01:27:40
Carmenchu de donde eres?
Steve Strickland
01:27:47
Hey, Travis!
Nancy Brown
01:28:10
I think for the most part, Dan means naming them by their species name, like Cardinal, Bluebird, Robin, Sparrow (and not Sam, Jane, Joe and Betsy, for example)
Travis Headley
01:28:22
Hey Steve!
Grettelyn
01:28:25
just don’t name your pig Wilbur
Steve Strickland
01:28:34
LOL
Annmarie Hart
01:28:59
I'd say no

Nancy Brown
01:33:18
Belloc?
lisayanchulis
01:33:43
Yes indeed! School needed for girls. But…we have Chesterton Academies… Are they trying to segregate anywhere? I know it’s not St. Martins…

Amy
01:33:57
I will ask Mother if those plans could still materialize. I am an oblate with them.
Rebecca
01:34:22
my 15 year old loves all Chesterton's Poetry...
Christopher Childers
01:35:28
Can you elaborate on why?
John Hissong Cleveland
01:35:44
You mean the sexes are not interchangeable?!
Annmarie Hart
01:36:00
Amen
David
01:36:01
all 53 genders are interchangeable
Lydia Smith
01:36:06
But there's a lack of womanhood, too...
Steve Strickland
01:36:14
Good answer by Chris.
KDG
01:36:20
real femininity
Christopher Childers
01:36:24
Yes, there is a crisis of authentic femininity.
John Hissong Cleveland
01:36:44
Agree very much, Lydia.
Annmarie Hart
01:36:45
I feel like we WANT to be "homemakers" but the culture says we are oppressed if we want that
Annmarie Hart
01:36:48
so silly
Lydia Smith
01:36:56
As a mom (Lydia's), I would suggest that females are less "pack animals" than males, and benefit, perhaps, more from relationships with their mothers in the home environment.
Annmarie Hart
01:37:13
Agreed, Lydia
Christopher Childers
01:37:23
I’m a father of three young daughters, so this is of importance to me! :)
Francine Fosselman
01:37:49
Robert Louis Stephenson
Rebecca
01:37:55
I agree Daniel...we homeschool our children through High School, so even our boys are home. However, my daughter (now21) is one of the only young women her age who not only loves her family...but literally "wants" to see her younger siblings and would come home from college...to be with them. I think this will be invaluable when/if she becomes a mother and wife.
