[quote]”For centuries birds have fascinated man, perhaps for their ability to fly and thus proximity to the supernatural. We have cast them as symbols of war, peace, vanity, courage, independence, wisdom, strength, greed, and harbingers of doom. When I observe birds I see all of these traits manifested within their own societies. Their behaviors parallel ours and vice versa. To me birds are as complex and contradictory as we are.”–Maria Kozak[/quote]
