"Birding is hunting without killing, preying without punishing, and collecting without clogging your home. Take a field quide into the woods and you're more than a hiker. Your a detective on a backcountry beat, tracking the latest suspect from Mexico, Antarctica, or even the Bronx. Spend enough time sloshing through swamps or scaling summits or shuffling through beach sand and you inevitably face a tough question: Am I a grown up birder or just another kid on a treasure hunt?" -Mark Obmascik
"From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea, creation's revealing your majesty. From the colors of fall, to the fragrance of spring, every creature unique in the song that it sings, all exclaiming.. Indescribable, uncontainable, You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name, You are amazing God". -Chris Tomlin/Laura Story
