"Crow-d sourced!"

We seek the words and stories of bird lovers, bird watchers, writers, artists, musicians, teachers, students, scientists, non-profits, federal and state organizations, environmental stewards, and nature lovers from around the world—regardless of age, education, publication history, location or writing style. This is open source-text, for use in non-commercial projects. Lay some bird-related poetry on us, peeps!
