"Behold, my brothers, the spring has come,
The earth has received the embrace of the sun
And we shall soon see the results of that love!
Every seed is awakened and so all animal life.
It is through this mysterious power that we too have our being
And we therefore yield to our neighbors,
Even our animal neighbors,
The same right as ourselves, to inhabit this land."

Notice the wing and tail feathers that are just beginning to form.
