Arctic Dreams

Other people’s words about … birds

Birds tug at the mind and heart with a strange intensity. Their ability to flock elegantly as the snow goose does, where individual birds turn into something larger, and their ability to navigate over great stretches of what is for us featureless space, are mysterious, sophisticated skills. Their flight, even a burst of sparrows across a city plaza, pleases us.

From Arctic Dreams
by Barry Lopez

Why do we love birds?
Because they fly.
They sing.
They live wild amongst us.
Yes, indeed, they please us …
