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.
