Kentucky Color - They do not sow or reap

Click on headline for essay with photo(s)

By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry

In a parking lot in Elizabethtown Saturday I was presented with a modern rendition of the well used Bible verse, "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they"?

What a joy it is to see nature adapt and function as it was created to function, even in this most modern and most unnatural ecosystem.


While facebooking, emailing and texting I began to notice a flurry of activity and motion across the passageway. Upon closer inspection I realized that this entire covey of Sparrows was actually cleaning the grills and radiators of unsuspecting and most assuredly, unappreciative motorists.

The birds were methodically progressing from one grill to the next hopping back and forth and up and into the exposed air intake grill area to partake of the bounty of insects, etc. delivered to them every few minutes.
