More reflections on "The Meaning of Birds"

Continuing the quote by Charlton Ogburn, Jr.:

"...voicing in the lost, falsetto cries of the gulls the mood of the beckoning, dangerous sea, in the whiplash calls of the chuck-will's widow the nighttime witchery of the southern woods, in the cathedral-singing of the thrush an intimation of a transcendent purpose in the universe."
