Summary: The Trouble with Birds

Some succumb to accidents, hitting highrise windows mistaking the windows
for open skies, some die due to disease and exhaustion, some fall prey to cats,
others arriving at their destination when their food source has disappeared
due to global warming, others die from unknown causes. All these birds are
dead but beautiful biological specimens worthy of reverence, respect and
contemplation. Are they harbingers of our future?
