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

 

I know the song each shy bush dweller sings, 
From daybreak, when a small grey bellbird rings —
“Awake thou lazy one and stretch thy wings!” 
Till all the golden air with sound vibrates 
And every feathery throat with song pulsates 
To join their music with wild mountain spates. 
These songs I know and love!

“You’ll think this is a bit silly, but I’m a bit–well, I have a thing about birds.”
“What, a phobia?”
“Sort of.”
“Well, that’s the common term for an irrational fear of birds.”
“What do they call a rational fear of birds, then?”
