Twitter. Tweet. Birds sing in Java’s forests. Whoosh! They are caught in a trap.


People sell those birds. Others buy birds to win bird singing contests.


Some people worry. Will there be any wild birds left to sing in Java?


READ MORE: Have you heard the saying, “He bought it for a song?’” It means for far less than what the item is worth. Songbirds on the Indonesian island of Java are being trapped. That is against the law. People buy the caught birds. They want the birds to win money in singing contests. Will Java be able to protect its wild songbirds? Psalm 104:12 reminds us that the birds of the heavens sing among the branches. Stop and listen for those songs.
