My stepmom is one of those crazy birdwatchers who won’t go anywhere without her binoculars. She’s always looking for a rare variety, a flash of distinctive color, or an identifiable melody.
Me, I just get caught up in the simple marvel of flight. Whether driving down the road or sitting on my back porch, I love to look up and watch these free-spirited aviators. Even the lowly swift can do miracles.
I’ve learned a bit about bird design over the years, including the four main wing types. Jet wings on swifts enable them to out-dive the best fighter planes.
The more I learn, the more I come back to a simple truth. The Creator loves to do the impossible, and he wants the whole world to see (Genesis 1:20; Matthew 19:26).
