"People have always envied the birds for their ability to fly. The messengers of the Greek gods had winged sandals, the angels – God's messengers in the Bible – were shown with wings, as well. ‟Winged words,” the ancients said. How fitting to reconnect birds and messages and words, via the global ‟cloud,” in the here and now! By sharing stories about birds and flying, we're delving down into our own ancient symbolisms about birds – one of which means hope. In honour of BirdLife, which is also about hope, enjoy these flights of fancy!"

Margaret Atwood, Honorary President of BirdLife's Rare Bird Club
