The Pandemic and Song Birds

The pandemic, which has reduced the amount of noise humans make, has had a tremendously positive effect on many aspects of nature.

This article from National Geographic deals with research done on the impact of the pandemic on white-crowned sparrows in the San Francisco area.

The researchers were expecting a difference – but what they found was that the difference was a lot more than they expected! Good news!

When you read the article, make sure to listen to the two sound clips. The differences are indeed amazing.

Let’s hope that when we go back to “normal” it no longer includes overloading the world with noise. Fingers crossed, very quietly.
