Birds Matter

"Hear how the birds, on ev'ry blooming spray,
With joyous musick wake the dawning day!" - Alexander Pope.

"Even the blackest of them all, the crow,
Renders good service as your man-at-arms,
Crushing the beetle in his coat of mail.
And crying havoc on the slug and snail." - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
