You sit at your window and watch the birds in the yard. You watch them search for food. They flit and fly around. You find yourself very relaxed. It is important to maintain your bird feeders properly. Keep them clean and full of fresh food at all times. You can hang your feeders from trees or purchase a specially-made hanger. You can attach them to porch railings as well. You can tailor your feeders to certain species of birds. Thistle will generally attract finches and small birds. Sunflowers seeds will attract red birds. And peanuts attract blue jays. Don´t forget about the humming birds and orioles. They like a feeder filled with sugar water. Relax and have fun with the birds! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Barbara H. Scott. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/030464/bk_acx0_030464_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Life itself could never have been sustainable without seabirds. As Adam Nicolson writes: ´´They are bringers of fertility, the deliverers of life from ocean to land.´´ A global tragedy is unfolding. Even as we are coming to understand them, the number of seabirds on our planet is in free fall, dropping by nearly 70% in the last 60 years, a billion fewer now than there were in 1950. Of the 10 birds in this audiobook, seven are in decline, at least in part of their range. Extinction stalks the ocean and there is a danger that the grand cry of the seabird colony, rolling around the bays and headlands of high latitudes, will this century become little but a memory. Seabirds have always entranced the human imagination and New York Times best-selling author Adam Nicolson has been in love with them all his life: for their mastery of wind and ocean, their aerial beauty and the unmatched wildness of the coasts and islands where every summer they return to breed. The seabird’s cry comes from an elemental layer in the story of the world. Over the last couple of decades, modern science has begun to understand their epic voyages, their astonishing abilities to navigate for tens of thousands of miles on featureless seas, their ability to smell their way towards fish and home. Only the poets in the past would have thought of seabirds as creatures riding the ripples and currents of the entire planet, but that is what the scientists are seeing now today. 1.

Planet Maya is a trilogy. It is a book about a haunted, cursed mansion. The mansion found many new owners at a bargain price. Every owner that purchased the said mansion did not have the courage to stay and confront the evil curse and strange things happening...until Paul´s family decided to resolve the mysteries. This story comes with three different stages in three different books until the whole story is revealed. Mark Twain stated that courage is not the absence of fear, but the resistance and mastery of it, a trait which the book´s main character, Paul, exemplifies. Paul works hard to provide for his family and to be a loving father and husband. When he finally gets the house of his dreams - a mansion on a lovely expanse of land - he doesn´t question oddities, like how the former owners left unexpectedly (leaving their possessions and old food behind) or a black bird that haunts the barn and repeatedly attacks his son, Angelo, whenever he ventures outside. The whole family is on edge from all the peculiar happenings centered around the house, until one day Angelo goes missing without a trace. Paul suspects that the black bird has something to do with it. He takes matters into his own hands and hunts the perpetrator responsible for his son´s disappearance as well as the family´s misfortunes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Ashton.
