Watch and Learn from the Birds

In a little garden that I was sitting next to this morning I watched a bird gathering twigs to make it’s nest. It was picking them from the ground, recycling nature’s goods to build it’s home. What if we adopted this practice again? If we used the nature’s goods to build our homes, the goods that are naturally available in our surroundings? Instead of making all the homes cookie-cutter McMansions, what if we actually used our natural resources as we found them? So if there isn’t an abundance of 4×4’s in a certain area, but there is a heck of a lot of clay or Pinion Pines, why not construct a house made of that?

We can learn a lot from watching the birds, we just need to pay attention…
