Innate genius, and press-ups
Prayer sent, beautiful post, thank you. I found myself relating to the swift who was not doing push-ups, seemingly a casual fellow.
Love this piece. Read it thrice. Thank you!
Lovely post - I didn’t know there was a bird called a “swift” - it makes total sense now that I know. Thank you
Hello, thanks for sharing this beautiful piece. I developed a deep desire to better understand the natural world and birds after reading some essays by Hadden Turner. I’m glad I’m found your newsletter. I’m newbie and just purchased a book on birds in Florida. I am looking forward to learn more by reading your posts. If you have any book recommendations, I’m always open ears. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
I have been fortunate to work very closely with birds. Hope you swift gets to set sail soon, they don't travel alone.
I love learning more about birds, Chloe. Birds are such important nurturing neighbors and companions in my every day life; the soaring sea birds, the nesting tree birds, the tiny wee birds rustling in the lilacs. I also welcome learning more about death, especially from your close at hand perspective. Death has moved into a closer presence for me now. So this is in fact a heaven sent combination for me. 💕
