There are lots of sounds anyway that delight the ear. The songs of wild birds, without that the eco-friendly countryside could be almost a dreary put the shrill, whizzing bugle note from the whitetail deer which uttered limited to night and which is among the rarest and wildest of forest sounds the guttural, mysterious voices of moving herons shedding lower with the blackness overhead the background music from the wind in a single high, dim, shadowy forest of ancient, straight-trunked pines the deep-toned thunder roll from the surf beating upon a lonely shore-each one of these sounds within their a number of ways bring pleasure to individuals whose pleasure is based on natural things and who’ll not necessarily be pent in metropolitan areas.

Better, possibly, than these, more inspiring, more stimulating towards the lover of untamed creatures, is yet another seem, a seem which the most fortunate of forest-enthusiasts listens to but rarely-the seem of wide-wild wings, the wings of the great company of massive, beautiful, fantastic wild birds surging upward with the eddying air in certain remote and wonderful place. Eventually last June I heard that seem somewhere so lovely which i think there might be no lovelier place anywhere on the planet.

I was paddling in a tiny, flat-bottomed punt across the winding water-lanes of the certain cypress lagoon where lots of tall white-colored egrets and lots of herons of numerous kinds had their nests. I was bound to have an egret city located in the lagoon’s upper reaches and, of course after i visit that lagoon, the special moment from the place had laid its spell upon me to ensure that for that time I had been scarcely conscious of details but was lost and submerged in the good thing about my surroundings. I had been in another world, a flooded forest of some ancient epoch before man was known, an enormous amount of water as well as trees.

On the sides the graceful trunks of cypresses rose in the still top of the lagoon, their vivid eco-friendly feathery foliage developing a high roof above our heads, their branches festooned with lengthy, elegant pendants of Spanish moss. Out and in among the cypress trunks wound the narrow water-lane which i was following within our punt as well as in everything watery backwoods of trees, that lovely hidden lake, that was less a lake because it would be a forest whose floor was water rather of earth, there wasn’t any seem except the sounds from the wild creatures to whom this place would be a sanctuary along with a stronghold.

These were, almost all of them, sounds which were wild instead of musical. Gorgeous orange-gold warblers, which in fact had their houses in holes in dead stumps rising in the water, sang to all of us occasionally, their brilliant plumage flashing under the sun.
