There are so many species of birds it is hard to pick a special one. But there is also no need to. However, for me the simple barn swallow is my favorite bird. Why? Because they live their lives right in front of us, sharing every moment from arrival to courtship, from building a house, laying eggs, feeding the babies and caring for each other. Like us they also experience death and grieving, one of nature’s deep mysteries as part of life.
Enjoy the story of the swallows who show us how to live— simply, humbly, fully.
