When birds are better at doing Social Distancing

Kris and I have potted plants and flowers in our tiny balcony where birds do come and visit once in a while. We sometimes put our leftover fruits and give them to the passing birds to feed. In Australia, Lorikeet birds are everywhere. They are adored for their vibrant colours and and beauty. This particular Lorikeet frequently visits us ever since when we offered it water and bird food during the hot summer when there were bushfires around country. It is such a joy to have them around especially in this challenging season of isolation and social distancing.

Speaking of social distancing, this has been imposed in most counties around the world to stop the spread of this deadly virus. I think some birds are way ahead compared to some us in practicing this. And here’s a video to prove my point:

I think when you are being kind and mindful to these tiny beings, they remember your deed and now they keep coming back. Getting visits from them every now and then is very entertaining. Sometimes I reflect and envy their freedom. We humans are kept at home while they are free to fly wherever they want to go.

I guess this is an important reminder that we are all a part of the circle of life. No matter how small, big, or whatever kind of living being, we all live in the same planet and we all have part to play that could make an impact to everyone.
