Wetlands as a Place for Birds to Habitate
Birds flock toward habitats that offer lots of cover, food, water, and nesting areas. Birds also love to socialize so they desire having many places to sit near each other engage in their communal activities. Even in the cold of winter some of these birds hang around for the season when they can find what they need for survival.
Wetlands offer adequate cover to protect them from the natural elements and predators. A source of water is also vitally important. During the hunting season wetlands offer excellent bird hunting areas. Because wetlands are rich with wildlife it is important to ensure they are not protected areas.

He stood there bringing March against his thought, And yet too ready to believe the most. "Oh, that's the Paradise-in-bloom," I said; And truly it was fair enough for flowers had we but in us to assume in march Such white luxuriance of May for ours. We stood a moment so in a strange world, Myself as one his own pretense deceives; And then I said the truth (and we moved on). A young beech clinging to its last year's leaves.

It was seen as associated with death and was secretly sold to merchants. Vasari indicates that the face was painted on a wooden shield cut from fig trees. It was a favor to a peasant friend of his who fashioned the shield. Leonardo in his experimental style took the shield and heated it by fire and made it smooth. He then moved to make one his very first masterpieces. When his father Ser Piero came see the shield and knocked on the door Leonardo told him to wait. He took the painting and adjusted it near a window with the soft light peering through. Ser Piero came in and took a look at the painting and stepped back with
Moby Dick by Herman Melville is a classical example of 1851 literature that sparks deeper levels of thinking and provides a moral story for readers. As an artistic production it is seen as one of the greatest seafaring stories ever written. It provides a glimpse of early American life through the occupational experiences of sailors. Literature has an important function in society and transfers values and cultural beliefs. Story telling has been part of the human experience since the beginning of humanity. Moby Dick tells a moral story as much as it tells the tale of a whale hunt. Encouraging people to read such stories and think about their meanings helps to broaden their perspective. Some of the lessons you may encounter include: Don’t Let Your Passions Consume You: Captain Ahab had a mission and he was going to fulfill that mission at all costs.
