The lovely sounds of Spring!
The Sounds of Spring can Test Your Hearing
Spring has sprung and some of our favorite sounds in nature have emerged from hibernation! And did you know that listening for these sounds can actually be one way to test your hearing and/or hearing aid?
Can you hear the birds chirping? Rain falling? Or squirrels rustling in the bushes?
Here are a few of our favorite sounds of spring you should be able to hear…
Birds singing. Birds are migrating from winter homes in the tropics up to the north. As they go, they chirp and sing. Listen for the sweet sounds of the bluebirds, especially in the morning.
Rain. April showers bring may flowers! And some even bring thunderstorms. If you can’t hear the thunder or pitter patter of falling rain, contact your hearing professional!
Humming and buzzing of insects. As the weather gets warmer, insects and bugs emerge. Listen for the crickets and humming of mosquitos this summer.
Squirrels. Squirrels make loud noises from “kuk,” to “quaa,” and even sounds of chirping followed by meows. Listen for these and the noises of squirrels rustling in the bushes.
