Robins are known as the quintessential sign of spring, and have already been spotted in many parts of the country. Their graceful song and cheery presence are a sign of warmer days to come and the arrival of other songbirds such as house sparrows and nightingales. Robins are generally more active during the days, feeding on insects, cultivated fruits and berries, and assemble in large flocks at night to roost. This spring, consider leaving out suet cakes or mealworms to supplement their diet, and take advantage of this musical blessing of nature.
The “Alhamdulillah Series” has been a feature on Khaleafa for several years, aimed at highlighting the simple blessings in nature that surround us. The goal is to pause and reflect on the small things in our lives, and give thanks for these gifts that have been bestowed upon us.
"There truly are signs in this for people who reflect." (Quran 13:3)
