Baby Mocking Bird Rescue

Featured

You never know what the universe has planned for you. It always amazes me how the timing has to be so perfect in order for things to happen. Yesterday morning I went on a walk with my hubby. On our walk I was busy looking up in the trees for our new herons. Thankfully, hubby was looking on the ground and saw this tiny little chick just sitting in the middle of the road.

We quickly scooped him up and got him out of danger but weren’t having any luck finding the nest or mama bird anywhere. He was too small to be on the ground and on his own, especially on a busy street. We ended up taking the little guy to the South Florida Wildlife Center where they will care for him and release him when he’s ready. This also gave us the opportunity to donate to the center for all the great work they do. I love their slogan: “Saving Wildlife in our Urban Jungle.”

Sadly I’ve seen quite a few birds that have died this summer. The National Audubon Society sent out an email blaming the extreme heat for killing lots of babies. Although there’s no one better than a mama bird caring for her young, the odds were stacked against this little guy and the staff at the wildlife center agreed we made the right choice to bring him in. It was a small deed but nevertheless a good one and it felt great saving this little life!

I was surprised that we still have little babies like this in the middle of summer. Always thought this was more of a spring time event. Do you have the same where you live?

Thoughtful Thursday Sound

Your body is made up of 70% water making it a great conductor for sound. Different sounds can affect the body in a positive or negative way. It can affect our moods and emotions. It can even transport us to another time and place if we let it.

Some people need a good glass of wine at the end of the day to release the stress from their bodies. I like to listen to calming music while keeping my eyes closed and focusing on each sound as I drift to an inner peaceful place.

Even everyday sounds can have a calming effect on us. Like hearing small children laugh and play, birds singing, breezes rustling leaves in trees, waves rolling in on the seashore or rain drops hitting the roof. Whatever sound calms you, try listening to it more especially at the end of the day when you need to unwind.

I love to fall asleep to nature CDโ€™s by Dan Gibsonโ€™s Solitudes which are available on Amazon. The Solitudes CD’s offer a variety of nature sounds beautifully mixed with instruments creating a calming and serene atmosphere. There are a lot of different nature CD’s on the market but Solitudes has always been a favorite of mine.

I highly recommend listening to some type of calming nature music when you need to unwind and destress or as you fall to sleep. It does wonders for the mind, body and soul. Hope this helps you to relax and unwind.
