When there are too many people in the parks, it is hard to see the birds sitting on the lower branches and enjoying pecking on the favorite buds and blooms. However, with less or no humans moving about there are more birds seen sitting on the walkways and lower branches of the trees.
Yesterday as we drove to the get some proscription medication we noticed birds sitting on the java cassia tress and enjoying the buds. Squirrels and pigeons were walking on the roads as we drove past. Cows and goats have also been seen walking around. These are not normal sights in our city.
I noticed that there were some bee eaters in our garden this morning. I have never seen them here except on the high tension wires along the highways. Sadly these birds flew away as I came up the stairs into my terrace garden.
The sound of bird calls and song is increasing in the mornings. I am enjoying the silence of the city and the song of the birds, although we did hear an ambulance siren early this morning. This could mean that Covid 19 is closer to us than we thought or it could just be someone getting really sick with nothing contagious. I hope my second assumption is right.
Stay indoors Stay safe!
Are see seeing and hearing more animals and birds around?

And in the park next to my home they are now enjoying bird songs. Here, all ambulances put the lights and sirens together at 7:30 pm and go around the streets. People applaud them from the terraces.
I have read your post on that, I see the people applauding in the news. Sadly more than 13% of health workers in Spain are infected by the disease. The toll is climbing like crazy. Please take care, stay safe.
This time of year the birds make quite a racket in my yard and I enjoy every minute of it. The parks here are still busy with people takign walks even though we are all careful to keep a safe distance.
We had a peacock fly into our neighborhood I am told. I haven’t seen any in our neighborhood anytime in the last few decades.
So you still have people walking around freely. Stay safe, stay home.
I didn’t think of that but there are really more birds in my area.
It being spring time there would be more birds now but they are bolder now and coming closer to our homes now.
As spring is coming here, birds are singing more and louder. It’s the best music.
It is certainly the best music ever. We are so blessed.
The world is alive, with or without humans!
That is the simple truth.
That is the simple truth. Well said Doc.
thank you one of the reasons I love your posts is you make me think!
that is always fuN!
Sorry about the repeat. The comment didn’t show up the first time.
the many quirks of the site – no need to apologize ever!
I am busy keeping occupied with my writing. It seems that outside my window I hear birds singing louder and more cheerfully now that almost everything is very still and quiet
Good for you Rasmasandra, you have writing projects to keep you occupied, I see many people saying they are bored. Do look out once in a while and watch the birds:)
Very nice photo Dawn. The birds have nobody to disturb them. I saw a video of New York City. Nothing but pigeons and other birds. Kind of eery. But happy for they birds.
Hmm.. it does feel eerie when no one is on the streets, these cities look like ghost towns. Thank God for the birds.
I love this photo, to help us focus on nature a little more. I pray the ambulance alert was nothing serious like the virus threat.
I hope and pray too. Sadly since all are indoors we have no clue. Thanks for the prayers we all need them.
