Listen to the birds

So often we are so busy with our daily lives to stop and listen.
If we are in a town its usually traffic we hear,  the  chatter of people talking, maybe shouting or children playing.  I am lucky to live close to the country and perhaps have got so used to hearing the birds twitter and sing. Perhaps  I take this for granted, its part of  where I live.
This is another digital page for Matilde's theme of Birds over at
I haven't heard the local owl for a while, perhaps he is away on holiday while the other birds are  making up with their morning chorus and the continual racket the wood pigeons are making just now.

Thank you for calling in and I hope you have a good day.


  1. Super design. Love the owl's expression 😃
    Have a nice day💐

  2. I just heard an owl a few minutes ago, even though it is after 8 in the morning. I wonder if they are nesting nearby and something came too close to the nest. Your owl is very handsome, and your page is great Yvonne. I agree about hearing the birds sing and the owls hoot. It is all such a nice sound. Hugs-Erika

  3. Beautiful journa page and the quote is so true. We need to listen and not just make noise! Have a great week, hugs, Valerie

  4. This is beautiful, Yvonne. I've been hearing a woodpecker serenade me every morning when I water my herbs. It's wonderful because it gives me the chance to listen to nature, including the woodpecker. Thanks for sharing this beauty with us at AJJ that sends such a powerful message and honors Matilde's theme.

  5. Totally true, Yvonne, we don't ever seem to listen. The last two weeks, I have had fluid behind my ears and I can't listen well - funny how that makes you try to listen more. Very cool and love the owl! Hugz

  6. Interestingly, studies have shown that birds in noisy urban environments are able to adjust their singing patterns to cope with noise pollution. Fortunately, I hear the sound of birds in my backyard every day.
