Bluebird by Mark Catesby

[Bluebirds] make their nests in holes of trees, are harmless birds, and resemble our robin-redbreast.

Mark Catesby

***

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.

Chinese Proverb

***

I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862)

***

There is nothing in which the birds differ more from man than the way in which they can build and yet
leave a landscape as it was before.

Robert Lynd (1879 – 1949), The Blue Lion and Other Essays

***

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

William Blake (1757 – 1827)

***

It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.

Aesop (620 BC – 560 BC), The Jay and the Peacock
