The following is a short social media posting we used to engage our audience across our social media platforms. I would love to hear your thoughts, stories, comments on how spring is awakening in your neck of the woods.
Spring is a great time of year to listen to the awakening of the Earth. It’s literally abuzz with a euphony of sounds. We’re all used to the sounds of robins, cardinals and other daytime visitors as they call to each other and set up their territories, but have you given yourself the time to listen at night?
The night is generally a time of quiet, when the bustle of the day has passed by. Perhaps, you can take a listen and hear something new.
Try turning your outdoor lights down low for a few nights so nighttime visitors won’t be scared away. Perhaps you’ll hear the call of a Great Horned Owl, the peep peep of the Spring Peeper, the rustle of leaves or sway of trees in a gentle breeze.
You may even be able to see some new celestial objects in the night sky. Grab a pair of binoculars if you have them and look up at the moon.
Enjoy the spring awakening.
