In 1712 Joseph Addison said: “I value my garden more for being full of blackbirds than of cherries, and very frankly give them fruit for their songs.”
I so agree with him! I value my garden more for being full of doves! (Gauteng, South Africa)
Each kind of bird has a uniquely-shaped beak, wings, and even feather shape so that everything about it is perfect for the lifestyle it lives. The various wing shapes allow them to dart after a bug, soar miles above a field, or fly for months over the ocean. Just as God cares enough to give each bird exactly what it needs, so you have been given the exact talents and personality to live the life God has given you.
This is a Columba guinea (Speckled pigeon, Rock pigeon), one of the many birds in my garden.
