Spring is here – a little bird told me

It may not feel quite like spring but the birds are on to something. The other day I heard the sweet singing of a Song Sparrow. While personally, I’d like it to warm up a bit more, I’ll put my trust with these feathered weather forecasters – after all they’ve been doing this for eons. 

Ornithologists have learned that the longer hours of light that come with spring trigger the release of hormones in birds. These hormones prompt the male birds to sing. Male birds – like this Song Sparrow can then attract mates and fulfill nature’s imperative to engender new life. Spring. Song. Romance.  Have you heard this song – listen now
