Nearby to where I live there is a house that has a front lawn entirely composed of bamboo. Little shoots closest to the sidewalk and ones that are three stories tall near the back. Some days when I walk by the birds are up in the bamboo, singing away, but it's not just one or two, it's dozens and you can hear them all from a block away. I don't know what gets them going or why they are only there at certain times on certain days, but it's always such a treat to hear. The bamboo is so beautiful too. Sometimes the owner of the house leaves tall bamboo stakes out for the neighborhood to help themselves. I took home a few many months ago but haven't quite figured out what to do with them yet.
