The birds of the world represent not merely the ability of creatures to travel to the far ends of the earth, but a colourful diversity that is celebrated by millions. Migration is key to the survival of these birds, as they move from one continent to another, spanning different cultures and levels of development — and, sadly environmental destruction.
Several international organisations are celebrating World Migratory Bird Day 2008 on May 10 and 11. Spare a thought for wonderful winged visitors who make our lives so much richer and colourful.
There’s a video created with just that message here: http://www.worldmigratorybirdday.org/2008/
