Dear Friends, I hope you enjoy our new animal song video Oxford the Octopus. As you may know, the octopus can be a very clever animal, and clever is what Oxford is! Have fun watching him change colors and disguises, as well as appear in the unlikeliest of places throughout this song video. This video also contains most of the song lyrics so that you can read or sing along to Oxford the Octopus. As I wrote in my previous blog post, the octopus is widely regarded as the world's smartest invertebrate. In fact, the intelligence of the octopus and its ability to change color and shape inspired the verses in Oxford the Octopus (from our CD IF I WERE A FISH and Other Ocean Songs for Kids by Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders). The Giant Pacific Octopus is the specific species after which I modeled my character OXFORD THE OCTOPUS. Until I did my research on the Giant Pacific Octopus, I did not know that octopuses can have emotions and often change colors according to what they are feeling. Pretty smart, indeed! (Giant Pacific Octopus photo source and credit found on bing.com.) This kids music video will help you learn more about octopus intelligence and behavior. You can also learn about how baby octopuses are hatched in a previous blog post video. Want to know how you can help to keep the ocean clean for the octopuses and other sea animals? OXFORD THE OCTOPUS has a few suggestions on our website! Enjoy!

Dear Friends, I hope you enjoy this exciting YouTube video by Science Friday. It's called Where's the Octopus? and it contains awesome footage of octopus camouflage. Not only does the octopus (and all cephalapods--squid, cuttlefish and octopus) change colors, but it also changes its skin texture and patterns in order to blend in to its surroundings. Camouflage is the octopus' primary protection from its predators. Watch carefully and you will see the octopus: Change into a rock shape, go from camoflauge to a startle defense, ink the marine biologist who startled it, and change colors and textures in seconds. Listen carefully and you will learn more about octopus camoflauge as well as hear marine biologist Roger Hanlon talk about screaming with excitement after he witnessed and filmed the octopus' camouflage behavior. Eureka! Did you know that the octopus is widely regarded as the world's smartest invertebrate? In fact, the intelligence of the octopus and its ability to change color and shape inspired the verses in my kids song Oxford the Octopus (from our CD IF I WERE A FISH and Other Ocean Songs for Kids.) Listen to a sample of OXFORD THE OCTOPUS and read the lyrics to learn more about octopus intelligence and behavior. You can also watch another fun octopus video in my previous blog post.Want to know how you can help to keep the ocean clean for the octopuses and other sea animals?

Dear Friends, I hope that you enjoy this YouTube video of Giant Pacific Octopus hatchlings as much as I do. In this video I learned that mother octopuses stay with their eggs until they are hatched and growing. Did you know that the octopus is widely regarded as the world's smartest invertebrate? In fact, the intelligence of the octopus is what inspired my kids song Oxford the Octopus from our CD IF I WERE A FISH and Other Ocean Songs for Kids. Listen to a sample of OXFORD THE OCTOPUS to learn more about octopus intelligence and behavior. You can also read the complete lyrics to OXFORD THE OCTOPUS on the lyrics page of our Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders website.

Dear Friends, I hope that these lyrics will help you read and sing-along to our fun kids' song WORM POOP SONG, from our Parents Choice Approved CD EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED and Other Animal Songs for Kids by Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders. I never realized the importance of worms until I began my research for this song. Worms are master decomposers; They continously eat leaves, grass, dead fruits, vegetables and dirt as they crawl through the earth. They also make underground tunnels as they crawl, and these tunnels make spaces in the ground for air and water to get in. The air and water help the roots of the plants to breathe and take in water. Worms also poop frequently as they eat and crawl, fertilizing the earth as they move. This was a fun kids song to write and record. Children, teachers and parents love to sing along, wiggle like a worm and sing poop. It takes the everyone just a few seconds to realize that it's okay to say poop...and then off they go singing with gusto: POOP! POOP! And how can we not sing it? Worm poop, also known as worm castings, is very important to the health of our plants and ecosystems. As I mentioned in my last blog posting, just about every living thing is dependent on something else in order to survive and grow... Verse 1: I live in the ground. I hardly make a sound. I like to eat dirt as I wiggle through the earth. Making tunnels as I go, I move really slow. But my muscles are strong and they help me get along. I wiggle to the left. I wiggle to the right. I eat and poop all day and night. CHORUS: This is my life as a worm. And you know wherever I squirm, I eat dead things, help them decompose. My poop is fertilizer that helps the plants grow. I dig what I do in my life as a worm. Poop, Poop, Poop Poop, Poop, Poop, Poop, Poop...

Dear Friends, I hope that these lyrics will help you read and sing-along to our fun kids' song Everything Is Connected, the title song on our Parents Choice Approved CD EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED and Other Animal Songs for Kids by Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders. I have wanted to write a song like this since I was a child and began realizing that so many things in life are connected to each other and need each other to survive. For example, the food we eat is connected to the seeds that grew into fruit and vegetable plants. My food is also connected to the farmers who planted those seeds; the sun, rain and soil that the seeds needed in order to grow into plants; and the workers who picked the fruits and vegetables from the plants and delivered them to us. Each of us is also connected to trees because trees make oxygen, and we need oxygen in order to breathe and stay alive. Just about every living thing is dependent on something else in order to survive and grow. This is called interdependence. Nature is often called the web of life because of all the amazing connections and relationships it takes to keep everything working and reproducing. Even things that die give back to life in some way. There are so many examples of interdependence and connections in life. My song Everything Is Connected has three verses and a bridge with examples of these connections, but there could truly be thousands of verses with thousands of examples. Perhaps you will write one of your own verses. If so, I'd love to hear or read it. In the meantime, below are the lyrics to Everything Is Connected by Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders. We hope they will help you you sing along: Birdsong Singer/Songwriter Creator of: Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders Birdsong TV Song Lyrics: EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED by Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders Spoken: Connected, Connected, Everything's Connected (2x) Verse 1: Everything is connected. Grandma calls it the web of life. The moon helps the ocean rise and fall. The sun gives the whole world light. And the sun and the moon help the plants to grow. And the plants are food for young and old. Oh... CHORUS: Everything is connected. It seems that life's just made that way. The sun shines, the rain falls. Helps the trees and the flowers grow. The moon, the sea, the earth and sky. The animals, plants and you and I. We are all connected in this great big web of life. Spoken: Connected, Connected, Everything's Connected (repeat) Verse 2: Everything is connected. The trees, the birds, you and me. Trees make oxygen for us to breathe and seeds for the birds to eat. And the birds fly around, drop seeds on the ground And seeds grow into trees that help us breathe. Oh... to CHORUS BRIDGE: Well the food that I eat is connected to the seeds That were planted by the farmers in the earth beneath our feet. And with the rain and the sun's energy, And an awful lot of help from the pollinating bees, The seeds grow into plants that produce The vegetables and fruit that are now my food. So the farmers and I, The earth and sky, The seeds and the bees And the food we eat are: Spoken: Connected, Connected, Everything's Connected (2x)
