A shorebirds day

Today is the day of those pesky little creatures that fly every year through the continents… silly behaviour just to annoy 4×4 drivers who happily ride the vast shores, or those creative entrepreneurs who see the void wetlands and see towers of private owners and cascades of money…

Somehow.. there is many people who think like this.

And is for these people that we need one day a year to celebrate the living shorebirds and the places they use to live and raise the future.

Crazy people like me, who love the nature and enjoy all the colours and all the smells (yep all of them), we keep present and take care of the world all year long!

Because if something can be learned from nature is that we all live in this planet, and this planet is all we have.
The ones who didn’t learn to live and let live, go extinct sooner or later…
We must take the lesson of the shorebirds, they are many, they are diverse, and they all share the same shores to feed and live.
How? take a look at this illustration and guess..

For more information about this day and shorebirds please contact this blog or search in the web. And for more real hints about what I’m talking about, please shut down your internet device, go outside (the farther, the better!) and be conscious of all your senses! (we haven’t at least 5 for nothing!)
Have a really nice day!

  1. I started going outside about six years ago and now try to keep computing to the minimum. It makes such a difference.
    We don’t have shorebirds here in Ontario, Canada, but in the last three years or so we all of a sudden got Baltimore Orioles and Catbirds nesting in the garden, along with the regulars like robins and grackles.

    • Canada has such beautiful places to visit!
      I live in Cordoba, in the middle of Argentina and shorebirds are rare here. They can only be seen in quantity in a huge lake which is about 200 km from my city.
      But we are surrounded by mountains and forests full of birds and wonders to explore!
