May is National Pet Month, National Bike Month and has these specific observations:
In honor of World Migratory Bird Day, on May 9, let's take a closer look at some migratory birds. About 40% of all bird species migrate, usually twice a year (for a round trip). While it is a regular occurrence, the migration that some birds undertake every year is truly amazing, especially when you consider their size and the various conditions (weather, predators, natural and man-made obstacles) that they must overcome to find their way back and forth to the same locations often thousands of miles apart.
Some superstar migrators? The Arctic tern has the longest migration, at just under 50,000 round-trip miles, relocating between the Arctic and Antarctic for two summers every year. The bar-tailed godwit can fly for nearly 7,000 miles non-stop over 8 straight travel days. Bar-headed geese fly up to five and a half miles above sea level as they fly over the Himalayas. To prepare for these perilous journeys, many birds bulk up before their trip; some almost double their weight! The National Audubon Society has some fantastic resources for bird therapy during social distancing for potential birders, as well as activities for kids.
As most of us continue to practice some form of social distancing, it can be hard to find ways to feel connected to the rest of the world. However, we can actually do quite a bit from home, thanks to the wonders of technology. This month, we came across some environmental activities that we can easily do from our home base.
