The University of Exeter, the British Trust for Ornithology, and the University of Queensland teamed up to conduct a study that got attention from the international mental health community: People living in neighborhoods with a preponderance of birds “are less likely to suffer from depression, anxiety, and stress.”
It didn’t matter where study participants lived—urban or suburban neighborhoods. As long as birds show up regularly, it doesn’t matter which species of birds people encounter because mood improvements take place just from being in the vicinity of these beautiful creatures.
The doctor in charge of this study concluded that “interacting with birds” is such a powerful influence on mental health, you’re already being treated to constant avian therapy. Can you imagine how good you’ll feel if you take your next vacation to the birding capital of Central America, Belize? Who needs a therapist when these winged creatures are everywhere you look?

Are you as smart as some bird species?
It’s a valid question. According to the Birds & Blooms website, calling someone a bird brain has become a compliment. Birds are smart. Some bird species are eerily human. They plan, memorize, work together, recognize faces, mimic each other, solve problems, and use tools. If forced to pay for their travel arrangements, we’re pretty sure they would have the good sense to shop for deals.
