saved by the birds

The article focuses on the various birds which the author and her children had seen while living in New England. Two years ago, when the cold season extended into April, more flashy visitors arrived from the south and northern orioles, rose-breasted grosbeaks, bright yellow American goldfinches. As the author had learned from those first brave chickadees, the cardinal, the robin family, and now the sparrow, communion with another life can change your perspective on the world. The article informs that this section of the National Audubon Society Website features specific information about birds for kids.
