Trying to make sense of humanity's quirky and often devastating behaviors, birds formed a religion complete with mythology, lore, and fissured beliefs. “This is dangerous territory you place your wings in, my starling friend.” The goldfinch lowered his voice.

It's ripening, and when it's ready, there will be either a wonderful feast or poison.
