A little birdie told me ….

Do you ever have one of those days when you feel quiet and introspective?  You look around and see the world differently and think about deeper things than normal.   Today is one of those days for me and so with this in mind, and with Wilkinson’s World being mainly about birds and nature, lets ponder on a few quotes about birds that dig a little deeper than the surface.  I hope you enjoy the photos that I’ve chosen to go with each thought.

“I don’t ask for the meaning of the song of a bird, or the rising of the sun on a misty morning.  There they are – and they are beautiful.”                  Pete Hamill

   Rufus-naped lark

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.         Rabindranath Tagore

  Green-winged pytilia

God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.               J G Holland

  Swallow-tailed bee-eater

The bird of paradise alights only upon the hand that does not grasp.              John Berry

  Yellow-bellied greenbul

No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.                William Blake

  Great egret
