Birds, Birds Everywhere

You may Look Who Came to Call on the Hummingbirds Today!, or even try to look the birds in the eye.

Cindy Barton Knoke, who can not resist taking pics of Hummingbirds,has good reasons to think birds understand more about us than we do about them. When you look at her photographs several of those animals seem to look at the world with compassion and understanding how foolish human beings can be. Many of those birds and other animals seem to have us figured out.

Many birds may be curious and willing to conquer their fear. Corvids like ravens, crows and magpies, may remember the faces of people who do bad things to them for years.

Cindy Barton Knoke writes:

Most wild birds must be quite accustomed to a human before they will let you get anywhere near them. Smart birds. Starlings like this Superb Starling are capable of understanding grammatical rules and are being studied by linguists because their vocal recognition abilities surpass those of Tamarin monkeys. {Look Me in the Eye: Birds~}

You can not say man of fine looks and attitudes ‘flock together’ but the eye of the (probably) patient photographer shows us that birds of fine feather flock together!The writer of the blog Cindy Knoke tells us also that the San Diego Zoo houses the largest collection of bird species in the United States and manages there to take more than one a picture-taking paradise!
Today she also seems to have enough spare time to make some nice trips where she can play with the photographic lens and can capture the incredibly rich in wild bird life.
She admits to be no expert on bird identification, but for sure I find she has a good eye for them and also a good relation with creation.

She also remembers us that Hummingbirds were revered in many native cultures.

In Peru the Aztecs carved a Hummingbird figure in stone visible from the foothills.
They believed that Hummingbirds spread life, which is certainly true, as they are major cross pollinators. Their God of the Sun and War was called Hitziloppchti {Huitzilopochtli (Aztec god)} and he was known as The Hummingbird Wizard. {I Can’t Resist Taking Pics of Hummingbirds!}

What is also interesting is to see the many colours the birds have and see how they are reflected in other things in nature and in creations made by man or even more interesting by fossilization in nature itself: Ancient Creatures & Living Jewels~

One can look at those beautiful prints made by the ‘pressure of time’, but one shall not be able to capture the essence of objects.

Lots of human beings could learn from the smart birds and other animals the Creator has provided. People should also come to understand that when they do not see how to cope any more in this life, they would do better to look at the birds and to go out in the wide and wild nature, to let themselves be carried away by the colours and the movement of the other creatures than human beings. We can learn so much from them, but they also are also able to give us so much, even when we do not give them anything.

Next day you go out in the fields, have a better look and try to find the hidden birds as well. Enjoy Natures Jewels!

And let us at the same time remember, that of nature we do know very little. And the more we learn, the more we know how little we know!!

Birds, Birds Everywhere

Birds, birds everywhere,
flying through the sky without care.
Reminding us how graceful life can be,
as they fly from tree to tree.
Singing so very happily.
