Brighten Up Your Monday With Some Wonderful Examples Of Arent Birds Brilliant

Bee eater Spain 1

If there was ever a bird that fits the bill "Aren't birds brilliant" it is European Bee-eater.

Birds really are brilliant! They make our lives richer and are so good for our mental health in these strange and often very stressful times. Just take a moment to watch a Robin hop across your lawn and you will feel better, you will, try it, I mean really stop and watch it. Not just a glance but park all your other thoughts about the million things going around in your busy brain and watch the Robin, appreciate it and enjoy it. For a short time your brain takes a break from the stress of everyday life and you have a moment of joy. Of course it doesn't have to be a Robin all birds have the same effect if you take the time to really see them or listen to them. Even in the winter we can enjoy the songs and calls of our birds. Robins will sing all year round, this week I have also heard a Wren singing and a Cetti's Warbler and these moments bring happiness if you let them. Those of us that notice birds, and nature in general, are so very lucky we can take moments of joy everyday at often unexpcted moments. Driving down a motorway, pretty boring, I might notice a Red Kite circling over the busy road and that little moment brings a smile and makes that journey that bit better and more memorable. Then there is the social side of these sightings, how lovely to have something to share with others, "I saw a beautiful Red Kite today as I drove down here" that can trigger lots of memories of birds and nature shared in the past and that again lifts the spirts. So take that time to really see birds, sure we all have busy lives but taking just a few minutes each day to say to yourself and those around you "Aren't birds brilliant" will make your day so much better. Go on try it today and everyday.
