What melody will our rivers remember if songbirds forget how to sing?
Sheniz Janmohamed, Firesmoke

But in the early 1970s, we were not birdwatching. We were birding, and that made all the difference. We were out to seek, to discover, to chase, to learn, to find as many different kinds of birds as possible — and, in friendly competition, to try to find more of them than the next birder. We became a community of birders, with the complications that human societies always have; and although it was the birds that had brought us together, our story became a human story after all.
Kenn Kaufman, Kingbird Highway: The Biggest Year in the Life of an Extreme Birder
