do birds chirp to wake up plants

Although I have a deep admiration for our feathered friends, I definitely do not have the patience for bird photography. Mike Agiannidis has patience in spades. He is a typical renaissance man- photographer, fisherman, and car whisperer, who is brilliant at all three. Based in Toronto, Canada, him and his wife specialize in landscape and automotive photography. He was kind enough to showcase some of his wonderful bird photography for this blog post. You can find them here, on Instagram, andhere. Make sure to check out their superb photography.

I was the quintessential city girl. I’ve had the good fortune to live in Milan, Sao Paulo, Paris, Toronto, and now, as an adult in my 30s, Amsterdam, all thanks to my parents. The clamor of traffic, the roar of motorcycles, the metro’s halting brakes, the pounding of jackhammers, the monotonous beeps of reversing trucks, the dings of a departing tram, and now, in Amsterdam, the clinking and clanking of passing bicycles were the sounds that comprised my daily sound track, though, no matter what city I was in. There were very few animals, and the few birds that did exist soon became extinct.

Perhaps the problem at hand is much more complicated than my current understanding, but the idea that the very animals we need to help support our plants and crops to grow and thrive are the very ones we deter or unintentionally kill strikes me as a testament to the amazing balance we find in nature.

Despite my great respect for our feathered friends, I lack the patience necessary for bird photography. Mike Agiannidis has patience in spades. He is a quintessential Renaissance man—a skilled photographer, fisherman, and car whisperer. He and his spouse are based in Toronto, Canada, and are experts in landscape and automotive photography. For this blog post, he kindly allowed me to feature some of his amazing bird photography. You can find them here, on Instagram, andhere. Make sure to check out their superb photography.

Shakespeare once said, “The earth has music for those who listen.” It makes me think of that. For me, I frequently can’t hear the lovely music of the earth. One, I’ve forgotten to listen (something I’m working on), and two, I’m usually too preoccupied making my own noise.

Does bird chirping open stomata in plants?

No, bird sounds do not influence the release of oxygen from plants. Oxygen exits plants through openings in the leaves called stomata (singular = stoma). While stomata do open and close due to environmental stimuli, the chirping of birds one of those triggers.

What do birds do for plants?

Birds help plants, too! Hummingbirds help pollinate flowers so that they can produce seeds that are needed to grow more plants. Blue Jays and some other birds actually plant seeds. They collect and hide the seeds to eat later but don’t return for them all, so the seeds sprout and grow into new plants.

Why do the birds chirp in the morning?

It can start as early as 4:00 a.m. and last several hours. Birds can sing at any time of day, but during the dawn chorus their songs are often louder, livelier, and more frequent. It’s mostly made up of male birds, attempting to attract mates and warn other males away from their territories.
