Birds are excellent teachers.
Observing them provides a window into how nature works, and how best one may function, as a part of nature.
Adopting a bird species as a totem is usually a good thing, and anyone could do a lot worse.
Parent birds are especially informative, with their instinctive responses to becoming parents.
As soon as their eggs hatch, they busy themselves finding and delivering food to their chicks, while doing their characteristic baby-dance: fluttering their wings to teach their young to do the same thing, encouraging wing activity as a prelude to that all-important first flight.
Make or break! Flight is life, to a bird, and maybe to you, too. Practice all you can, to get it right.
Why would you want to emulate a bird, anyway? Well...
You'll never find out what you are, as long as you go on pretending you're what you're not.
Think human, then walk away from it.
