The clue is with the Owl, too wit to woo, and when we want to make an impression like BING bmbmbmbm. we woo, or make a SONG and dance about it, which ever way you look at it ,they are happy, as we are when in the same boat or should i say mood, unless you ain,t getting nowt then you become like the miserable old CROW. anyway we can all do with a laugh now and then.

I think it goes more like..
Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

When the most primitive homo sapiens began conceiving of vocal music, surely they were inspired only by birds... the only, or certainly primarily, musical animal (besides cetatceans, the highest mammals other than us). Later on when politics (originally via religion) dominated humanity, birds began to represent, among however many, liberty or true freedom, which has only in the last century culminated in our primary physical expression of freedom: mechanical air (and space) travel. When I think about it, representing music and freedom is as close to a "godlike" status as any species need be. Let's hear it for DA BOIDZ (as I've been listening to several of them singing away this morning)!
And like our avian brothers and sisters, I too dislike light pollution.
