Reflective Comments On Birding and Wings Over Water

The following reflective comments were provided by Pat Alesse, someone who has been an anchor here in Birch Bay……..

MaleEagleWhen I was a teenager, an older gal named Mabel James, from Akron, New York, got a hold of me and sent me on a path of learning about the environment and of our place in it. She gathered up a bit of money and sent me on a trip to Hawk Mountain, Pennsylvania. It was quite a birding adventure.

One of the first books she had me read was The Web of Life. It was a 1950’s work on the interdependence of all forms life on our planet.

Miss James was concerned about the earth and man.  She tried to impress on everyone the importance of taking care of the earth. “Pat,” Miss James impressed on me, “if we take care of the Earth, it will take care of us.”

I got the message!….I replied to her, “Miss James, if we don’t take care of the earth, it will take care of us.”

I might add, if man is the measure of all things, it’s our time to measure up.  One way is to help the next generation learn about their environment in the Pacific Northwest through birding, especially along our 15 plus miles of shoreline.
