Have you heard the Dawn Chorus?

Have you ever heard the dawn chorus? This is what they call the singing of a large number of birds before dawn each day. Especially in the spring.

There was a period of time, not too long ago, when I had to be outside just before dawn every day. Hearing the dawn chorus was breathtaking, motivating, and inspiring all in one. First you hear a couple of birds. Then a few more start. Then a few more. Before you know it, the air is filled with bird song. If you pause long enough to catch it, it seems like the entire planet is ALIVE. I’m no hippie, but it’s a wonderful feeling.

When spring comes around, try taking your first cup of coffee outside. Be still for a few moments and listen. It is an amazing feeling.
