House Finch, Female

Conversation about equality.

Once I asked a House Finch, “Are some birds better than other birds?”

“No,” she replied, “All birds are equal.”

“But some birds are faster, larger, and more colorful than others.”

“Yes, that’s true. And yet all birds are still birds.

Birds instinctively know they are part of the vast life that exists as nature.

As such, each bird makes a unique contribution to sustain nature.

If however, birds were all the same, they would need only one of us.

“Is it possible that some birds might consider themselves to be superior?”

“If they did, that would ruin the forest.”

“How so?” I asked.

“A belief in supremacy covers feelings of inferiority. Or it’s used as an excuse for exploitation.

And both of these lead to excess or violence.

Instead, birds thrive because they live in a mindset of equality.

It’s a strategy that has kept birds alive for tens of millions of years.”

“What if people lived like this?”

“You would have harmony.”

Much success,

Steve Kaye

PS > When people ask me “What’s your favorite bird?” I reply: “Anything with feathers.”

I especially enjoy photos of female birds because their subtle colors convey an example of the extraordinary beauty in nature.
