Birds are one of the best examples of how not to worry!
And with people across the world reporting worrying more than ever – maybe the humble bird can be a help.
So why not cheer yourself up a bit by celebrating the billions of them on earth over billions of years by feed them this special National Bird Feeding month.
With spring fast approaching they are extremely busy getting ready so feeding them is really important.
National Bird Feeding Month reminds us that sometimes birds come back a bit early, and they’ve just finished a long journey.
History of National Bird Feeding Month
National Bird Feeding Month was established in 1994 by John Porter, a man who so cared about the health and welfare of the birds that he read a resolution into the Congressional record.
He said: “I would like to recognize February, one of the most difficult months in the United States for wild birds, as National Bird Feeding Month.”
These were the words he spoke to the Speaker of the house, recognizing the importance of birds both in our ecology, as well as the hearts and minds of people everywhere.
Nothing says spring like the singing voices of our favorite wild birds.
And the great thing is – listening to them sing, watching them eat without a care in the world is a fabulous place to empty out our own worries.
