WATCHING the birds as they fly around our garden, I am amazed at how they avoid each other as they swoop in and out.
The dexterity and movement of each bird, which is controlled from such a small brain, has always been a wonder to me.
This is especially so when I see large flocks of birds, especially the Starlings as they come into roost at night.
The mesmerising displays as they weave in and out of formation is awe inspiring and captivating and one is left wondering how they never collide with each other.
We have some Blackbirds which come to our garden for the apple cores we put out for them and there is often a more dominant one which forces the others to leave, even though there is plenty for them all. How sad that we humans can also be like that at times with those around us.
The Starlings, however, working in conjunction with each other, produce marvellous displays for all the world to enjoy.
In his famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus Christ said these words, “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
That is something worth thinking about.
