“You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.” Chinese Proverb
“The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing.” Eric Berne
“It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.” Aesop
“You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you’re finished, you’ll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird . . . So let’s look at the bird and see what it’s doing – that’s what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something.”
Richard P. Feynman
“Why do birds sing in the morning? It’s the triumphant shout: “We got through another night!” ”
All the images were taken in the area around my house and garden in one day. I feel most blessed to have these creatures flying about. Some of them are now happy to land close by me and sing to me as I work in the garden. At those times, I have to confess, I stop work, and bask in the joy of their songs. And why do they sing?
THEY SING BECAUSE THEY HAVE A SONG!
