She Thought She Saw A Happy Bird In The Woods, Then Suddenly Realizes Her Mistake

There’s much to be said about the mental tranquility that comes from being in nature.

You get the idea: leisurely strolls along bucolic lanes, Sunday strolls across lush, green fields, long treks through dense forests.

For the majority of individuals, leaving the city and taking advantage of everything Mother Nature has to offer is a very beneficial procedure. That’s why some people incorporate it into their weekly routine as a habit in order to maintain their composure and sense of reality.

An added benefit is that when you choose to lose yourself outside, you never really know what you’ll come across.

According to reports, Australian woman Kym Beechey enjoys going for walks and admiring the beauty of the natural world. She is an enthusiastic amateur photographer who tries to capture some of the more remarkable objects she encounters, however it can be challenging because most animals, birds, and insects are shy.

Anyway, Kym was out one day and thought she had spotted a newborn tawny frogmouth, which is an owl-like bird.

Kym pulled out her phone and got ready to take a discreet picture. She thought the bird had a smile on its face, so she focused in to try to capture the ideal shot.

However, as soon as she completed the task, she realized her error.

The bird was actually a banksia pod rather than a bird at all. These frequently amusing-looking pods emerge from banksia trees and can have a very distinctive appearance.

Banksia trees are said to grow primarily in south-western Australia, but they are also found in Papua New Guinea and New Zealand.

Despite the fact that banksia trees’ pods are frequently likened to pine cones, they are not considered conifers.

It is believed that the distinctive look of banksia pods originates from the process of their pods bursting open, which frequently occurs during the heat of forest fires, releasing their seeds.

After laughing heartily at what she first believed to be a “baby bird,” Kym said she now had a somewhat unusual photo to add to her collection.

For my part, I had no idea these trees even existed. Did you not?
