The Calming Effect of Birdsong
The calming effect of birdsong may be the reason that the crime rate dipped in Lancaster, a high desert city near Los Angeles. In 2011, the town installed 70 speakers along half a mile of its main thoroughfare and piped in a dulcet chorus of songs, chirps, and tweets--minor crime fell 15 percent and major crimes were down 6 percent."
I found this in the National Geographic Bird Watcher's Bible.
