Birdsong on an easter morning

Last Update: April 12, 2020

Hello everybody, this is not my monthly post this a little one for in between

The main entrance to my farm on the south side

This Easter morning we woke up as usual at 07.00 and half an hour later Michael stepped out the front door and recorded this.

This year, while sitting at home waiting and hoping that it may pass soon and we can continue with our life we cannot celebrate Easter like other years.

We should though realize that we all have been given the biggest gift we will ever get, our life. Take care of it, do not be foolish and stay safe and healthy.

Thanks Taetske for sharing the birdsong at your home. It was lovely listening to the birds singing happily in the early morning.

Also hearing the roosters crow. That reminded me of my childhood when it was common practice to have a chicken run which of course included roosters.

Later in life when my younger daughter had a pet hen and rooster, both of which she loved so much and cared for herself, was a different story. Neighbours did not accept the early morning crow of a rooster.

Enjoy the week ahead and continue to stay safe.

With best wishes

Good Morning Valerie,

I live one and a half km from the center of the village. This still is a rural area. All the neighbors have dogs and chickens and sometimes it can be rather loud but is preferred a hundred times above traffic noise.
I have made a screenshot of an article I posted on FB, it is in Spanish. The story of a French rooster and a court case that allowed him to behave like he does even if the neighbors complained of the noise.

Good Evening, Taetske,

It is so wonderful that the court decision was in favour of the rooster. Thanks for the image.

I wasn't going to mention this extremely sad fact but, it was heartbreaking that early one morning at the end of our quite lengthy garden, I saw two golden mounds lying on the lawn. Someone had climbed the fence and killed both the rooster and the hen. It was devastating for our daughter and for all of us. She has always been a devout animal lover and carer.

Although we had a suspicion of who did this horrible act, we could not prove it. Therefore, we couldn't take legal action.

With best wishes.

Good Morning Valerie,

What a sad story. I know what it means to lose the animals you love.
Having lived on my little farm since 1981 I was lucky to share my life with lots of animals, cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, peacocks, and then the wild animals living on the property. Turtles in the big pond, hedgehogs, all kinds of birds, and little things like geckos, chameleons, lizards, snakes, well you name it.

Dramas cannot be avoided, that is life but when men interfere in a cruel way I always get very upset.

Stay safe and healthy, Taetske

Thank you for the birdsong Taetske, I love nothing better than hearing the birds singing when I wake up in the morning. Even more so when it is a nice sunny day.

You are right, Easter this year was not the same but we do have to be thankful to be given the biggest gift of life and we should do our best and stay safe and stay home. Xxxx

Dear Taetske,
thank you for sharing the birds singing in your beautiful paradise in Spain. Nature has so much to offer for us, I enjoy my long walks every morning now and I'm very grateful for the life I have. You are right, life is the biggest gift.
Stay safe and well,

Good evening Lenka,

We should be grateful and take good care of our life. Food, thoughts, and actions, it is all-important. Happy to hear you liked the bird's concert.

Dear Taetske,

Hearing the birds in the early morning hours is one of my favorites of the day to do.
You only will hear Mother Nature's song and I feel so blessed to do so where I live.

I hope, that the weather will get warmer soon, so I can sit outside and have my cup of coffee listening to the birds.

Thanks for sharing

Namaste and lots of Higs

Even though we are at home we still had our traditional Easter Feast. Turkey and all the trimmings and because it was only the three of us I didn't clean it all up only put the excess food away. We will be eating turkey for the next few days(O:

I just finished cleaning everything away this morning. back to normal again.

Yes, sometimes we don't hear the sounds around us. life is precious and we need to remember that.

Thanks for the recording it was refreshing.

Good evening Linda,

That sounds like a delicious meal. Leftovers can be very nice too.
Michael forgot the chocolate egg but I did get ice cream with a tic of something in the evening.
