Identification of the birds


Believe it or not, every species of birds has its own unique sound and as a child I learned this from my parents and Granny. I have always been fascinated by the various sounds of birds and so as a child I took a particular interest in their sounds.

Most kids would probably not take the time to pay attention to the sounds of birds but I did and as a child who had very limited vision, I derived so much joy in simply listening to them. I could conjure up their voices in my mind whenever I wanted and when I had enough vision to see what they looked like, then I was just like a kid in a candy store matching each bird to their sound.

Some birds have soft voices. Others have loud and boisterous voices. Some sing short and sweet while others pour forth long and lilting songs. I think that each bird is simply unique when it comes to how they sing. I simply love them all.

When next you are out in your garden, just sit for a few minutes and listen to those wondrous birds. They never ask for much except that you give them some scraps as often as you remember.
