So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.” birdcactus

“In order to see birds it is necessary to become part of the silence” – Robert Lynd

Well said – that is even more true for photographing them.
