"Birds connect us to the rhythms of nature. They help us understand the changing seasons by their comings and goings. They soar above us and around us and live amongst us in our backyards. They teach us about our landscape and even define it. We learn about beauty, grace, persistence, hope and ourselves when we take notice of the rhythm of the birds."
