Feathered Friends

A world without our Feathered Friends in the towns and countryside, the cry of a gull on the coast or the yearly migration with the changing of the seasons just wouldn’t be the same.

I don’t know about you guys but if there is one thing that always fascinates me is observing a bird going about its daily business. Whether it involves gathering nesting material, forraging for food or just sitting on a branch keeping a look out for predators or a flirt with a new partner. Watching a Blackbird throwing leaves up in the air looking for insects is so funny or watching the tug of war action as it pulls a juicy worm out of the ground, hilarious. Observing birds of prey is a rare occurrance but when possible an unforgettable experience.

What would the world be like without them? Very quiet, that’s for sure, too quiet. I can’t imagine standing in the middle of a field or in a forest without the chirping and squawking of our feathered friends. Imagine standing on a clifftop looking out to sea without seeing gulls flying overhead or Gannets diving for fish. Imagine a park without Ducks or Swans on the pond or Geese chewing grass nearby, pretty boring to say the least.

Did You Know?

To make them more lightweight, most birds do not have bladders to store urine. Rather than producing liquid urine to get rid of wastes, they produce a white, pasty substance. However, while an ostrich does not have a bladder like a mammalian bladder, it is unique among birds because it does have a complete separation of feces and urine.
