"India is the only place where nature seems to flourish in spite of dense
populations, even in cities. I was told of a sacred grove in a village on Bali,
a Hindu island. We arrived just before dusk, when hundreds, if not thousands,
of birds were restlessly rearranging their roosting positions. Most of the
birds were egrets of three species. As they rose and whirled through the
air, they reminded me of spirits - the essence of birds."
