songbirds

bird family sanctuary

red finch

The restless birds in the tree-tops high
Are shaking their wings at last,
And chirp, and twitter their songs of praise,
As the dawn comes on so fast.

—Mary Dow Brine

thrasher

a sanctuary filled with an extended family—so many beautiful birds, delightful birds, playful, flying, scampering birds—thrashers, sparrows, woodpeckers, starlings, and titmice and and and.

the sound of flight

perhaps if we really listened, really heard what was said in bird songs, perhaps then—

we could be transported—imagine the sound, the wind—experience.

I fly because it releases my mind
from the tyranny of petty things.
—Antoine de Saint-Exupéry 

 

Flying might not be all plain sailing,
but the fun of it is worth the price.

—Amelia Earhart
