Have you ever had the chance of seeing birds while walking on a mountain trial or even on the pavement in the city? You will certainly get excited if you find one. Even though you may be disappointed at not finding any, you still can listen to the chirping of the birds. If you listen more attentively, you will find the chirping is somewhat like singing. It is so musical and pleasant; at times, it is like the utterance of their own language. The birds are making sweet conversation among themselves. My cousin introduced me to bird-watching while I was a high school student. Since then, I have been sharing such wonderful experiences with my friends.
