One cannot give a large share of his life to this carefree hobby without soberly reflecting on the mechanics of the well-integrated world of nature. One inevitably becomes a fervent conservationist. . . .Such understanding comes slowly, but it does come if one inquires more deeply into the lives of birds and is not satisfied solely with being able to identify them.

We don’t know who took the photo but would be happy to credit it to the photographer if anyone knows who it was. What a fine photo.
