Birds in the Garden!

Chava Dumas

This spring, try to wake up very early one morning, when it’s still completely dark and totally quiet. As the darkness slowly begins to lift, you may soon hear one soloist begin to chirp, as though calling others to awaken. Within a few minutes, this lone voice will be joined by another perky chirp. As the moment of sunrise approaches, what do you hear?

How do we say Modeh ani? The joy of the new morning is contagious. Hearing the birds’ excitement can remind us how precious is the gift of each new day. Hearing how the birds greet each morning can remind us how much we have to thank Hashem for the new opportunities He gives us every day, to learn and grow and give to His world!

However, if you are disappointed to discover that birds aren’t in your yard, there’s something you do to encourage them to come. Make a bird feeder!

A bird feeder is an open invitation for wildlife to visit, enjoy a free meal, and provide a free show, so that you can enjoy bird-watching right at home.
