Grateful for Birdsong

Processed with RookieSaturday morning was a mild one and, as I walked to the supermarket, I breathed in the warmer air with pleasure. I noticed that I was not the only living thing enjoying the higher temperatures. As I strolled along, I heard the sound of birds calling out to one another. This is a sound I do not hear during the cold months of winter. I don’t notice the lack of birdsong but, when the birds return,  I enjoy their sounds. This year we have had a very mild winter and it is a little early for the birds to be here – I normally hear them a little later on in the year. Yesterday I woke up to snow on the ground and it was a little strange to hear the birds chirping while I walked on the white sidewalks.

This week I am grateful for the birdsong as it means that Spring is a little nearer.

What have you been grateful for this week?

  1. Birds singing is such a lovely sound, especially as we wait for warmer weather.

    I’m blanking out so I have a question – I’ve been writing gratitude project posts (though I did miss some weeks in January) and add a link to this page at the bottom of each one. Will that automatically send you a pingback?


    1. No, what you need to do is insert the link. To do this, highlight the use you want to use (eg, my name). Once you have done this look on the toolbar of your dashboard where you will find what looks like a paperclip. Click on the paperclip and a box will come up which prompts you to insert a link. In this box, insert the link to my post. When you publish your post, I will get a pingback to your post and will know that you have participated.
      I hope this explains everything to you. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
      If this is too complicated for you, feel free to give me the link to your post in the comments (as you have done today) and I will visit. 🙂


    1. I visited and read your beautifully written post.
      I noticed that when you created the link to me, it went to my home page. A pingback will be created ONLY if you link to my post.


  2. We have birds all year round in sunny Brisbane, but different ones visit at different times. I was listening to a beautiful song today that I couldn’t identify. I recorded and am hoping to have it identified later in the week. I love waking up to birdsong every morning. Enjoy your early birdsong.


    1. That is one of the things I miss about living in South Africa – the birdsong that used to wake me up every morning. Hope you find out the name of the bird who has been sharing its voice with you.
