Very true!
For me it's all of nature, Koalas ,Kookaburras, Roos, even being amongst many trees in our beautiful hills always lifts me, it's a daily practice for me & often while i'm out walking i am given the gift of saving an animals life, i have all the local rescues in my mobile phone.

I agree too. Birds are so much fun to watch and listen to. Thanks Kalliope

True, but I also think it applies to other animals as well.

Well, the problem is, you cannot see them in many big cities :-(
I still live in a country where you can see birds almost at anytime of the day/anywhere :-)
