As Allyn Evans recently noted on her blog Happily Ever After Today, we could learn a lot about life from watching birds.
Anne W., author of the blog The Eclectic Writer, adds this:
Watching birds is so meditational! I'm always amazed to watch their social interactions at the bird feeder - which birds are bold and fly right in, which hang back a bit and approach only when the crowds have thinned. If you pay attention, you can eavesdrop on their conversations. Each type of bird speaks its own language, but somehow they manage to communicate with each other over suet and sunflower seeds. I find it absolutely fascinating.
