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 chores. Whether it involves gathering nest material, foraging for food or just sitting on a branch keeping a look out for predators or even having a flirt with a possible 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 & 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, unimaginable.

“The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay & which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing.”

Eric Berne

“No one is free, even the birds are chained to the sky.”

– Bob Dylan

“Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes & ears, as close to us & everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?”

– David Attenborough

“If I had to choose, I would rather have birds than airplanes.”

– Charles Lindbergh


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 faeces and urine.
