We asked Jacelyn Downey, education programs manager at Audubon Rockies in Fort Collins, Colorado, how to identify birds: “Ask yourself: What size is it? Is it small like a sparrow, medium like a robin or big like a goose? What is it doing? Is it swimming, crawling on a tree or soaring? What colors do you notice? Where are these colors on its body?” Download the free Audubon Bird Guide app to narrow down the species based on the information you input. JOKE OF THE WEEK Can you repeat that?

Harvard researchers also found that simply being in the presence of an animal slashes stress by 40%! 3 Pets ease loneliness The Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) reports that 80% of pet owners say they feel less lonely. “Pets alleviate social…
