It can be interesting to listen to the sounds of nature and in particular the sounds of animals, birds and other creatures. Watch animals who are content, maybe cattle or deer grazing in a field. Watch dogs, cats, rabbits, mere cats or any animal lying in the sun or perhaps birds feeding in the trees or on a nut hanger.
All appears calm and serene, even the sounds they make are sounds of peace and contentment until they are disturbed or attacked by a predator or alerted by some noise or disturbance.
Suddenly the sounds these animals were making change from being calm and peaceful to sounds of alarm. Nearby birds send out shrieking sounds to alert other birds and animals in the vicinity of possible or imminent danger.
During a storm the howling winds of a cyclone, hurricane or strong winds and the lashing of heavy rain create sounds that suggest clearly that one needs to look for shelter to protect oneself. This is a far cry from the peace and tranquillity of a warm calm summer’s day.
