Today is caturday once again, and if you're like me, you are busy -- perhaps a bit overwhelmed -- with all the things you have committed to finishing before going on holiday.

I recently stumbled across this lovely video by a talented filmmaker that you must see. This video documentary may provide you with a few moments solace and quiet inspiration.

Filmed in Porvoo, Finland, this little documentary captures the local wild birds going about their business in their natural habitats there -- even the sound track is gorgeous! I recommend turning the sound up and going to "full screen" for this short film:
