Wild Wonder June 21: Birdsong

This summer, Incarnation families are gathering weekly at Alcova Heights Park, or at home, or in another lovely natural spot for a relaxed time of family prayer and nature exploration—read this post for a quick primer. Here are this Sunday’s wonder-worthy scriptures:

Psalm 104:33 

I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;     I will sing praise to my God while I have being.

Luke 12:24

Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!

Nature focus: Birdsong

Grab your binoculars and birding guides! Or just turn on listening ears. On Sunday we’ll relax and listen for birdsong. Here are four birds commonly found in North America:

Wonder all week

  • ID your neighborhood birds with the free Merlin Bird ID app or Cornell University’s All About Birds site.

  • Refill your bird feeder. (That's for me!)

  • Listen to “Bird Song"

  • Listen to “Do Not Worry"

  • Together think of other stories and passages from the Bible with birds featured, and choose one to read together: Jesus’ baptism, Noah’s ark, Jesus’ Presentation in the Temple, Isaiah 40:30 . . . .
