Bird Sleep

Sleep is one thing that comes naturally to me and with ease. The best sleep is on a moving bus on a hot summer day with no seat, tightly packed. It has always amazed me, why we get a nice sleep in moving bus on a hot summer, Your head banging against the window, seat bar. And strangely no sleep in your comfy home, with a neat mattress. Indeed strange.

But how do birds manage sleep, with all predators lurking around, no bed. I had never thought about this, till i saw one duck sleeping on one of its leg, during my trip to my village. At the end find some snapshots of  the duck enjoying its sleep on a single leg, alternatively shifting it, and plummaging its beak in its feathers.

Man they sure have advanced nervous system then Humans. Sleep while resting on one feet. I cant even stand alert on one feet for a long. They do have amazing control system which keep them balanced while sleep. Nice to know that.

Not just that, but they remain alert also in this position for any predator attack, or any cameraman coming closer. I missed out taking a close shot of its bottom feet. You should have seen the structure. Will try next time.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually

something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for

me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to
get the hang of it!

Excellent blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own blog

soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise
starting with a free platform like

Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally

overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!
