From early in the morning, the sound of their singing floats through the open window and enters the room. It lets me know a new day has come and the sun is out.
On rainy days, their songs are few and far between; they’re still there – only more sporadic. In the evening, birdsongs are prominent and resonate in the atmosphere, like they’re holding a concert and everyone’s invited.
Time observing the beauty of creation is precious.
We breathe deeper automatically while outdoors, amidst trees and birds. We’re challenged to find contentment in the moment, without the distraction of the digital devices we’ve invented and invited into our personal lives and pockets.
Listening to birds (in the distance or quietly closeby) can be a form of sonic refreshment.
Observing them is both relaxing and entertaining. Birds are resourceful, and for the most part, they’re diligent and joyful. They live with music in them, and share it with us through the melodies in their birdsongs.
Take a deep breath…and enjoy…
