What is it about birds that compels us to watch?
Is it their ability to just get up and leave - with no bags to pack, no traffic to beat and no appointments to reschedule? Who hasn't - when personal affairs have gotten a little too sticky - felt just a little bit jealous?
They bring a welcome degree of certainty to life - if only weekend guests were as reliable as migrating birds to arrive and leave right on schedule. Their migratory ways also remind us that even on the coldest days renewal is in the forecast, which can at times be warm comfort.
They selflessly persevere as they sit on their nests, hatching the next generation of demanding brats. And also like us they must negotiate a pecking order. So maybe we feel a sympathetic fellowship.
