A FRIEND DIDN’T KNOW THAT SOME BIRDS RISE AT 3:00 AM & START SINGING – HE KNOWS NOW.

Before TORONTO traffic and construction starts in the morning, some birds are up well before the sun. Not only do they sing in the morning, but they sing loud. Robins, for instance, are so sensitive to light and they’re such early risers that even a tiny bit of light is enough to wake them up and start them chirping.DAVID SIBLEY, a birder, artist, and author of ‘What It’s Like To Be A Bird’ says if you’re bored, try watching birds. “Birds make a lot of noise and their songs and calls all mean something. It takes some practice to hear them, but once you start noticing these sounds you will hear them everywhere.”“In these days when travel is restricted, when a lot of experiences are impossible, birds bring the experience to you.” – DAVID SIBLEY Yesterday two cardinals visited. They seem to come only once every year. This year they were early, spent a few minutes looking around, and then took off – never to be seen again until 2021. I live close to the Don Valley, and probably their permanent residence is somewhere down there.  There are plenty of birds and a wildlife sanctuary in the Don Ravine.
