World Wildlife Day
Today is recognized as World Wildlife Day. But for Angie and I, along with many of our friends, every day is just that. We love the wild world around us and appreciate seeing them in our travels.
I cannot imagine our backyard without any birds or mammals enjoying it with us.
Our yard March 2/16
Think about your own backyard, or if you don't have one, think about where you go in your daily travels. Surely you must see a Squirrel, a Sparrow, a Gull, something. Imagine they disappeared? Our lives get so busy that we don't see or hear everything going on around us, but I am certain that if even the most common House Sparrow suddenly disappeared, people would notice and miss their little chirps and tweets.
I always say the day I do not hear a bird sing is the day the Earth stands still.
So, on this day, and any other day, take a moment and think about the wild animals, the planet, is there anything you can do to help them or even just one?
It just happened to work out this morning that I will be driving 2 Big Brown Bats to Toronto Wildlife. The hibernating creatures were accidentally awoken from their winter slumber. As most know, Bats are insect eaters and suddenly coming back to life in early March would be deadly.
It's great that whoever stumbled upon them had mercy and wants to help them other than just dispose of these nasty beasts as far too many see it.
We'd love to have Bats visiting our backyard, feeding on the mosquitoes. Who could ever complain about that?
Crazy, 2 blogs in 2 days!
Thanks for stopping in...
Another backyard shot from last September. These photos take me to the summer nights and how much we enjoy sitting out back and waiting for the creatures to stroll through.
