Of the avian variety that is. Has anyone else noticed they are more present, vocal, singing up a happy storm? Just spring or happy to be taking nature back?[LOVE]

Suspect we can hear them more because the road traffic noise is much quieter and there are no planes in the sky.

Had a Song Thrush in my garden today, a rare sight these days. They were so common in the sixties[sad]
On a positive note, lots of Goldfinches seen - a rare sight when I were a nipper😀

During our daily exercise walk to the river Ise on Sunday we saw a beautiful pair of Treecreepers working their way up an old Ash tree. Plenty of holes & loose bark so probably choosing a nest site.
On the way back saw first Swallow of the year.

Just waiting for nightingale to show up and the book report/panini/match attack album should be about full.

The exercise can be spelt out like this.

Choose either a movie, TV show, song, album etc anything really then count all the syncranicities that match up with it, for example the Good Omen. Written by Pritchard and Gaiman. Amazon / BBC if you want to see the first minute.

and I quote. "God plays an ineffible game of her own devising" Nobody nows the rules with a dealer who smiles alot for infinate stakes"

Thing is I've seen the card table, just the cards, nobody knows who the other players at the table are. The voices are changed at a whim to anyone that we hear, so plenty of chatter.

another one we wil share is the left right game. We are checking the continuity, does the Angel always walk, point, perform their miracles with the right hand etc. You get the idea.

So waiting for a nightingale to show up...

waiting...

As it happens I was just going to add another happy thought about the lovely proper blue skies. Which is great.

Now we live in a typical terrace so we don’t get loads of birds, except the two pigeons that have followed me through three house moves.

And except for these two pigeons I can not see another bird. Not high in the sky, not just catching me eye. I’ve looked hard in all directions and seriously can’t see one bird. Are they all akip?

Buy a box of Swoop. They’ve got Vultures on the front of the box. And King Penguins.

Serious question.
Birdsong is the way they communicate with each other, but how do they hear – without having ears?

I remember lots of ads for ‘invisible’ bird hearing aids in the newspapers in the 1960s. Stannah lifts too, for Penguins and Daleks.

Along the wall as you go up the stairs.

Thanks, Filbo for my knowledge of the day. I admit to having to look it up:

Hearing is birds' second most important sense, and their ears are funnel-shaped to focus sound. The ears are located slightly behind and below the eyes, and on most birds they are covered with soft feathers called auriculars for protection. ... Some birds, most notably oilbirds, also use echolocation, just as bats do.

When I used to walk through Fosse Road Rec to work. I used to whistle to the birds. They without a shadow of doubt used to talk back to me.
