Imagine a world without birds
How strange it would be to wake up to a world without birds; it would be an eerie silence, a disturbing quietude, one that would be immediately missed.
We are often surrounded by nature’s symphonic bird song, yet don’t recognise it, nor often pay attention to it. Yet this beautiful wonder of life signals something that gets to the heart of an essential balance in nature that underpins much of life on earth: our ecosystem, which is a vast and interrelated natural community of flora and fauna.
Take the key stone from a bridge, and what happens? The entire edifice collapses. On earth, much the same can happen; many species represent this key stone of nature, and birds are no exception.
Simply put, a world without birds would be chaos, and what we take for granted is often fundamental to our way of life. As Corey Finger of 10,000 Birds has said, “birds are the always-present possibility of an awakening to the natural world that too many people have not yet experienced.”
