BIRDS DAWN CHORUS

 

BIRDS are one of the interesting animals I love talking about, do u know that bird have affection just like humans, they like preparing for their future partner, it might sound funny but birds are very jealous, before we wake in the morning, those crazy birds are awake, they’re already whooping up with their trills, melodies and crescendos. You are witnessing what is often called the “dawn chorus” that period before the sun shows itself, but when the great outdoors is already filled with beautiful sounds of nature, the birds that you hear are mainly males. They are doing what male birds do best, protecting/claiming their territory and/or trying to attract a mate.

WHY SO EARLY

There are a few theories about why birds sing so vigorously during those per-light hours. For many years, the prevailing theory was that those early hours are typically the coolest and driest hours of the day which allowed bird songs to travel the farthest, giving their voices better range. It’s sending a message to other males that they should stay away…and the farther away the better. It was also assumed that females could be attracted from farther distances, very intelligence right?


WHAT ABOUT COLD

A completely different theory is that “early bird” singing has little to do with the effects of heat, humidity or wind but has everything to do with proving how strong male birds are. The way to impress the females and to scare away your competition in the bird world, is to be big, strong and vigorous. It is thought that the better you can sing during the most challenging time of the day, the better mate and more challenging competitor you will be. So, if you can sing loud and strong in the early morning before you have time to warm up and have a good hearty breakfast, the better mate and stronger defender of your territory you will be.

Both theories seem to make sense to me, and I think that a combination of both theories is the genesis of the dawn chorus. In any event, the reason behind the “why” becomes less important to me each and every time I get the privilege and honor of hearing this mysterious, beautiful and wonderful event. I encourage you to set your alarm in the morning, and go outside to experience one of the finest wonders of nature.

Whatever type of hypoallergenic dog food is used, it should be fed for a minimum of 8-10 weeks to adequately assess the dog’s response.

When the original diet is fed, the symptoms should return within two weeks. Following confirmation of the food allergy, single source ingredients (e.g., slices of chicken or a sprinkling of wheat) may be added to the hypoallergenic dog food to determine exactly which ingredients must be avoided in the future.
