The other day I made a post on my FB page about birdsong. Basically it was just the difference between the chorus at work and then at home.
I didn’t find out that it was ‘International Dawn Chorus Day‘ until I saw a post on the Daily Nature Blog about it. Read it here, but basically why they sing is “sex” and “home defense”. Says it all, really! B-)
It’s amazing what you miss of the world around you when you experience them all the time. This is a reason to slow down our lives, even if only for 5 mins a day, and really notice what is going on around us. From the bees, flies and insects in the garden to the birds in the trees and everything in between.
If you don’t see these things then see if you can plant something to encourage them into your life?
